Special Collection February 17th: HerSong

The mission of  Her Song is to interrupt the cycle of human trafficking and lead women to freedom. They do this in three ways: survivor care, victim outreach, and community awareness.   HerSong has established the first residential program in our area that provides a healing home and holistic services for survivors of human trafficking to help them on their journey to recovery.  Please welcome Rachel White, founder and executive director of HerSong Jacksonville.
