“This is a day that the girls will never forget,” said Matthew Ladika, the chief executive officer of HomeSafe.

While President Donald Trump visited his golf club this morning, Melania Trump arrived at HomeSafe at about 10:15 and spent about 45 minutes talking with a group of girls between the ages of 12 and 17, Ladika said. The girls were all removed from their families by court orders and placed in HomeSafe’s residential program, the agency said.

“It was extra special and touching…She asked them what their interests are,” Ladika said.

HomeSafe serves a total of 40 boys and 7 girls at its residences.

Ladika said the Secret Service visited the Lake Worth residence on Thursday to check it out before today’s visit.
