Chattanooga (WTVC) — It’s a project a local charity thought they wouldn’t see happen until one church changed that.
Mile Straight Baptist Church in Soddy Daisy donated land that will help house survivors of human trafficking.
Blazing Hope Ranch has been working for more than a decade to help women coming out of sex slavery.
Wednesday night, a local church voted to give them land the church has owned for years.
David and Jo Haggard are the founders of Blazing Hope Ranch. They say the idea started with a project in college.
As they learned more about human trafficking, and it’s effects on people, they decided to move forward with their dream of housing victims.
