Southern Nevada charity develops ‘safe houses’ for victims of human trafficking

Good News Notes:

A grant from the MGM Foundation has made it possible for The Salvation Army Southern Nevada to provide housing and case management for the nonprofit’s SEEDS of Hope Program, which serves human trafficking victims.

The SEEDS, or the Saving, Empowering, Educating and restoring Dream, program is partnering with Walker Furniture to fill two apartments for those seeking help from the program.

The apartments became available for occupancy on Aug. 7, and their location is undisclosed to protect the security of victims.

SEEDS of Hope is currently serving 25 victims with ongoing case management. The new homes should be able to serve from 10 to 15 victims over the next year.”
