According to the orlandosentinel, local and national law enforcement efforts are being stepped up in Orlando, Fla. due to a recent rash of human trafficking cases. Supportive services including modular housing are on the agenda for the newly-created task force established to deal with the victims. Central Florida non-profit, The Lifeboat Project, is currently seeking land for the emergency shelter, the most pressing need. MHProNews has learned separately Lifeboat provides rescue and personal recovery services for victims of forced human exploitation.
