Group unveils plan for Kentucky’s first shelter for child victims of human trafficking
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Governor’s Mansion hosted a fundraiser Thursday night for a group that plans to open Kentucky’s first shelter for child victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
There are more than 200 children trafficked every year in the state, according to Safe Passage.
The faith-based organization says it will provide comprehensive services to help the victims and their caregivers, including 24/7 shelter, aftercare and outpatient services, caregiver training, and school prevention programs.
Safe Passage says it plans to open the first shelter in 2020.
