Congresswoman Kaptur said many of the young people who are processed in the juvenile justice system suffer from mental illness. “We simply have to do a better job in this community of dealing with juvenile mental illness,” she said.  

“We want to get to these young people early, before they are trafficked, and rescue them from surviving couch to couch,” said Rev. Anthony, whose organization administers “Second Chance,” which provides comprehensive services to victims of domestic sex trafficking.
