Her Song Jacksonville provides follow up care for survivors of human trafficking to help them on their journey toward recovery and restoration. Our day-to-day work involves mental health support, case management and specialized residential programs to help women progress toward health and wholeness. The name “Her Song” represents a woman in complete freedom with a new identity.
Where do victims come from? Our clients come from right here in Jacksonville and are referred to us by local agencies including law enforcement and strategic partnerships within the judicial system. However, we do get referrals from our survivor network and from community members. Victims are often abused children, orphans/no parents/from foster care system, and have a history of substance abuse, no support system or family to depend upon for help and safety, and have limited education and job skills. They have been trapped in cycles of abuse for so long it seems normal. Her Song’s programming addresses these issues.
We value and practice trauma-informed care and have a team of healing survivors who inform our practices as well. We are strength-based, client-centered and collaborative in our work.
