There has been a huge focus on Human Trafficking, it's hard for many people to even fathom that something like this could be happening right in our own community. For many people, this is a reality, and they deal with it on a day-to-day basis.


The recent ribbon cutting of the new "FreeTHEM Center" was this past Tuesday for the grand opening, the center is located at 852 Kensington Ave. This is a place where women can go that has been victimized by human trafficking, also young ladies that maybe at-risk can go there too. Kelly Galloway is the founder of "Project Mona's House" which is a project that rescues victims that have survived human trafficking around the country.

The new organization will provide mental health counseling and addiction counseling, women will be able to get help with life skills and workforce training, and one of the most important things of all, in my opinion, empowering workshops.

My hope is that we will have a safe place for vulnerable and commonly exploited populations. A place that will build community, restore faith in one another, and better lives.

The "FreeTHEM Center" is the sister location to Buffalo's only human trafficking restoration home, Project Mona's House. There is a lot of money generated through human trafficking. The International Labor Organization reports that about $150 billion is made globally. I have spoken to victims in the past, and the stories that were told were just flat-out unbelievable, and I see what many women are talking about when they say it's easy to judge a person when you're on the outside looking in.
