A customized Facebook Group is created for each region with an active leader and team members.
Harbourage Transitional Living Center of north central Florida provides short term emergency placement for victimized females and males rescued from human trafficking or at risk of being trafficked.

In addition a long term shelter is planned to bring people from the point of victim to thriving, self-sufficient survivors.
