Realtors and employees of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty are showing their support for Rethreaded, a Jacksonville-based nonprofit organization that renews hope, reignites dreams and provides career opportunities to survivors of human trafficking.

Two groups representing the company’s DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Council recently volunteered at Rethreaded. In addition to upcycling leather from retired airlines seat covers for use in new accessory products, the team toured the nonprofit’s campus, talked directly with Rethreaded’s team and shopped at their retail store.

“There’s more to human trafficking than many are aware and it’s easy to misunderstand what it really looks like for the people affected by it,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty CEO Kevin Waugaman. “With job training, employment and holistic services, Rethreaded is helping survivors of human trafficking heal and thrive in our community.” 

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty’s DEI Council is focused on increasing diversity education and awareness within the company and throughout the local community. For more information about Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty, visit FloridaNetworkRealty.com.
