Rachel* is a nice, pretty, 20-year old girl like her friends.
But, she has a secret.
Is he out there right now? Rachel asks herself this as she tries to focus at the tech company where she works. But she can’t stop looking out the window.
She knows her stalking “boyfriend” might again be lurking outside. Waiting to intimidate her, beat her, force her back into sexual slavery.
How did Rachel end up so scared, so stuck? The same way it happens to many others. Rachel was a minor when her “boyfriend” first coerced her into sex trafficking. Rachel wanted out, but worried about being arrested for prostitution. About public shame. About losing her job.
The last time Rachel’s criminal “boyfriend” beat her and stole her car, Special Operations assigned a retired law enforcement officer to help her. He got her car back. He moved her into a hotel. He kept her safe and helped her through the complex process of filing a restraining order. We know who the criminal is and this case is far from over. But, we need your help to keep going.

There are men targeting young girls all over the Bay Area. The girls are often too trusting, believing the man is their boyfriend and even the most engaged parents may not realize what is going on until after tragedy strikes. Special Operations is a Public Private Partnership between the community and law enforcement that helps rescue victims and target criminals. We are a 501(c)(3) and 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly towards keeping kids safe in the Bay Area. Please donate now.
