Her Song Rescues Victims of Human Trafficking on the First Coast.
Did you know that Florida ranks #3 in the nation for human trafficking, a $150 billion industry worldwide and the second most common criminal activity after the illegal drug trade? Shockingly, Duval County ranks #5 in Florida as a hub for sex trafficking activity.
Over the last six years, Her Song has rescued more than 500 women on the First Coast from a life of abuses inconceivable to most of us – abduction, forced prostitution, physical and psychological torment, drug addiction and unbearable emotional trauma.
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 women 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. We continue our search for acreage on which to build our flagship residence.
