Human trafficking shelter opens in Toledo

TOLEDO — A shelter for victims of human trafficking has opened its doors in Toledo. The opening of the home is years in the making.

There is other shelters for women in the Toledo area, but not specifically for victims of human trafficking. The founder of the shelter said with Toledo still being ranked one of the highest cities for human trafficking, the home is needed. The name of the ministry, Butterflies 15, is to symbolize the transformation they hope women who stay there will go through.

The first woman is moving in next week. Ultimately, the home will be able to shelter up to five. It's gone through many renovations and updates. All furnishings, bedding, even positive books and CDs were donated. Vision Ministries donated the house itself.
