Supporting efforts to combat human trafficking in Cleveland

The Salvation Army of Greater Cleveland and THE Hue Jackson Foundation Open New Residence for Human Trafficking Survivors

New Wing at Harbor Light Complex to become Safe Haven for Recovery

On Tuesday, July 17th the new Hue Jackson Foundation Survivors of Human Trafficking Residence on the 3rd floor of the Harbor Light Complex opened. This residence is approximately 4,500 sq. ft. and provides a safe environment for up to 12 recovered adult survivors of human trafficking. It offers collaborative and holistic services, and provides shared office space for law enforcement, healthcare, and social services providers, to help assist these survivors on their road to recovery.

Ohio is currently ranked 4thin the nation for the number of reported cases of human trafficking. Most people think it only happens in third-world countries or in America’s largest cities, but it’s happening right here in Northeast Ohio and in a big way.  Tragically, one of the largest groups that are being targeted are children between the ages are 12 to 14.

This effort, to aid in the recovery of human trafficking victims, is the result of a partnership in mission between The Salvation Army and the Hue Jackson Foundation.
