    TULSA, Okla. - A Green Country organization will soon turn 54 acres of land into a place to help victims of human trafficking.

    The Demand Project, founded by Kristin and Jason Weis, directs efforts, resources and energy toward the eradication of sexual exploitation.

    The couple acquired the land near Adair County through a donation. FOX23 is not showing the exact location due to security reasons. Eight homes and a dining hall already on the property will be used to help women and children who have escaped human trafficking.

    The Demand Project plans to move people in starting next spring and still needs at least 90 beds, numerous kitchen appliances and more household items.

    Organizers are also looking for plumbers, electricians and other service technicians who are willing to donate their time to get the site ready.

    Those interested in offering time or money to the cause can find out more information at thedemandproject.org.
