Tucson Police officer wants to build recovery center for young sex trafficking survivors

TUCSON – A Tucson Police officer is on a mission to open a recovery center to help young survivors of sex trafficking.

“In the human trafficking unit I recognized a huge need for children 11 through 17 that are survivors of sex trafficking,” said Sarah Haught, an 11-year criminal intelligence officer. “I recognized even more so that it is an epidemic here in the United States.”

Haught has a ranch centrally located in Arizona on 70 acres. She is hoping to turn it into a long-term care holistic facility called Beauty From Ashes Ranch to help girls 11-17 years old through equine therapy, counseling, and education job training.

“That comes back to Beauty From Ashes, you know what the evil in this world meant for their destruction, the lord is turning around and using for his glory and for his good,” she said.

A gala will be held Friday at the JW Marriott Tucson Star Pass at 7 p.m.

Haught said that if they are able to raise enough money, they will be able to break ground in the spring.
