What is SAFE in Central Florida?

A Strategy

addressing all parts of the fight against commercial sexual exploitation including prevention, intervention, and restoration.

An Alliance

of businesses, people and organizations who are united to combat commercial sexual exploitation in Central Florida.

A Fund

that invests tax-deductible donations in qualified, vetted organizations who are moving the needle in the fight.

Who is SAFE in Central FL?

In October 2019, inspired by SAFE founder Heather Tuininga’s success in Washington state, and motivated by the size of the human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation problem in the Orlando area and the simple, repeatable SAFE model – three people from the Central Florida area were inspired to start SAFE in Central Florida.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers play an indispensable role in the relentless battle against human trafficking, a crime that robs countless individuals of their freedom and dignity. Selfless dedication demonstrates the power of collective action in making a profound difference in the lives of those trapped in the clutches of traffickers.

Florida has ranked 3rd in volume of calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline every year since 2007.

Orlando is the 3rd ranking US City (per capita) in volume of calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

These organizations have joined the fight!

Phase Two Initiatives

Funding from SAFE for projects in the fight against human trafficking in Central Florida occurs in Phases, with each phase starting with an exploratory process to determine the greatest needs of the community, a notice to local organizations for ideas or initiatives that might help meet those needs, an evaluation and selection of those proposals based on viability, cost and other factors, a fund raising season followed by donor-supported grants provided to the selected projects. The projects below were those selected and funded in our Phase Two, which took place over the course of 2022-2023.

Legal Aid for Record Expungement

Record expungement is critical for victims of human trafficking because it can help them overcome barriers to employment, education, and housing.

Meaningful Employment with Livable Wages

Providing survivors of human trafficking with meaningful employment opportunities with livable wages can provide survivors with financial stability, a sense of purpose and dignity, and opportunities to build new skills and connections.

Education and Training Catalog

A comprehensive catalog of training and education is critical for raising awareness, promoting understanding, standardizing training, identifying gaps, and promoting collaboration in the fight against human trafficking.

Housing

Housing is a critical need for human trafficking victims because these individuals are often exploited, abused, and forced to live in unsafe and inhumane conditions by their traffickers. After escaping or being rescued from their traffickers,

Demand Reduction

Reducing demand is crucial for combating human trafficking and other forms of sexual exploitation that are prevalent in the commercial sex industry.

PHASE THREE

Next Steps

We are targeting finalization of our Phase Three strategy by late first quarter 2024.

Get Involved

“Human trafficking is a plague that we cannot stop fighting in our state and nationwide. I will work daily, along with law enforcement partners across Florida, to combat human trafficking and rescue survivors.”
