Monetary Donations are always accepted and appreciated. Government funding for human trafficking has been frozen all year though victims’ needs are still present. Please help them by contributing to FCAHT’s general fund which supplies shelter, clothing, food and toiletries to the 13 victims we currently have. This fund also covers FCAHT’s office expenses so we can continue our mission to bring awareness to the issues of human trafficking and bring rescue and restoration to the victims of human trafficking throughout the State of Florida.
Florida is in need of Domestic Sex Trafficking shelters to address the very specific needs of these victims. If you would like to contribute to help alleviate this desperate need, please contact our office at (727) 442-3064.
