Beau Hill strode through the hallway of the Cleveland Salvation Army's Harbor Light Complex near downtown.

Hill, executive director of the Cleveland Salvation Army, was preparing to show a visitor a new facility built to take care of the victims of human trafficking. Asked what this 12-bed center meant to him, Hill was quick to respond: "It's huuuuge."

When Hill entered the facility, signs of recent work were evident. He stepped around scaffolding and through rooms that recently had wallboards and spackling compounds added. He pointed to a living room, walked down the hall past a mini-kitchen and around a corner to three bedrooms where up to 12 women who are survivors of human trafficking could sleep.

The Hue Jackson Respite Services for Recovered Survivors of Human Trafficking will have its ribbon-cutting ceremony/grand opening July 17. Housed in the Harbor Light Complex, it is largely funded by the Hue Jackson Foundation, which the Cleveland Browns coach established with his wife, Michelle, a year ago.
