Did you know that Hot Springs was the first in the state to have their own Human Trafficking Task Force? Started, and successfully functioning as one of the strongest in Arkansas, the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County performs a variety of functions from awareness to legislation. The founder, Melisa Glenn, travels the state helping other cities establish their own Task Force.
Melisa also serves as the PATH Area Representative for Hot Springs. As an Area Rep, Melisa does public awareness, hosts informational events like the annual PATH Victim Services Training, and works as an advocate for victims and survivors in the Hot Springs area. When a victim surfaces, the Area Rep is one of the first points of contact to a safe world. It is important to act quickly and quietly to assure complete safety. Melisa works with local law enforcement to make sure that happens and that the survivor is moved to the PATH Restoration Home or another safe bed right away. Former Mayor Ruth Carney and Melisa even drove one survivor to a sister facility out of state due to the fragile nature of the case and the need to get her away from her trafficker. It’s people like this that make such a huge difference in the lives of survivors while impacting their community in the fight against trafficking.
