Get to Know Reclaim 13

Leslie Harris here, and last Saturday night I went to a gala to benefit an organization called Reclaim 13. This is an amazing organization that helps fight child sex trafficking, and they’re local, headquartered in Lombard.

A startling statistic that they shared with us is that kids are most vulnerable to sexual exploitation at the age of 13! Hence the name of the organization, Reclaim 13.

The organization provides housing, food, education, and perhaps most importantly, counseling for these girls and young women that have been rescued from the world of sex trafficking.

Check out the great work they are doing at
