Human Trafficking / Sex Trafficking Nationally & Locally

Ninety percent (90%) of the women in sex trafficking want to leave the trade but don't have access to jobs and a new life. Florida ranks 3rd in the nation for sex trafficking with 1,887 women identified in 2019, but there were only 131 beds. Jacksonville ranks 3rd in the state and 48th of all cities in the nation. There are 50-75 women rescued in Jacksonville each year, however, housing and recovery resources are inadequate. There are women right now in Jacksonville, FL who want to leave their human trafficking situation, but they don't know if they will have a safe place to sleep tonight.

The Villages of Hope

Through the effort and support of multiple local organizations, The Villages of Hope broke ground late July 2023. They are building 14 tiny homes that will house 28 women seeking a life free from human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and addiction. They will provide complete care for each woman for 2 years.
