Her Song Offers Life-Saving Care to Victims of Human Trafficking
Since 2013, Her Song has assisted more than 600 young women from the North Florida region in the aftermath of abuses inconceivable to most of us – forced sex-slavery, physical and psychological torment, abduction, forced drug addiction, and unbearable emotional trauma. Some are international victims, some are labor trafficking victims, but most are sex-trafficking victims from right here where we live. The victims in our community need resources and assistance; they have been robbed of power, choice, dignity, and freedom. This is why Her Song exists.
Founded in 2013, Her Song provides shelter and services to survivors of human trafficking and is the only organization of its kind in Northeast Florida.
Human trafficking is a huge, often invisible problem. Literally, thousands of women and girls are trapped in a life of violence and exploitation right here, right now. Where do they go to find their way out?
Her Song is interrupting the cycle of human trafficking and leading the exploited to freedom. We do this in three ways: survivor care, victim outreach, and community awareness.
Our dreams came true when we launched the first comprehensive residential program in Northeast Florida for human trafficking survivors. Freedom Cottage opened in 2017 and continues to have a long wait list. In 2019, we opened our second residential program. We continue our search for acreage on which to build our flagship residence.
You Can Help
Our work, and the hope of the young women we serve, is heavily dependent on the financial contributions of community members, foundations, and corporate sponsors. Join our giving partners so we can continue programs for the exploited.
