MIAMI, FL – Executive Fantasy Hotels, founded by the Del Rey family 43 years ago in South Florida and still being run as a family business, is continuing to lead the way in anti-human trafficking efforts in the region with innovative programs and partnerships. A recent $10,000 donation to Survivors’ Pathway, an organization based in Miami that provides support to survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence, sexual abuse, and human trafficking, is the latest action in the company’s efforts.
“We are a family business, and since we opened our first hotel in 1979 in Miami, our top priority has always been to keep our community safe and contribute to efforts to fight against human-trafficking,” said Julio Del Rey, owner/manager of Executive Fantasy Hotels. “This donation to Survivors’ Pathway is the beginning of a partnership to aid in the great work this organization does in our community, helping the victims of human-trafficking and domestic and sexual abuse. It is an honor for us to be able to contribute to their commendable efforts.”
This latest donation from the Del Rey family is part of a larger strategy to combat human trafficking, domestic and sexual violence in the community. As part of the efforts, the hotel group, with over 200 employees, partnered with One Love, a national non-profit that fights against human trafficking, to create a training program for its employees, even before it was required by Florida law. Since implementing the program in 2018, employees from the 13 South Florida locations have received in-person training from nationally recognized instructors on how to spot human trafficking and contact the authorities.
Executive has also worked hand-in-hand with local governments to craft meaningful legislation to help curb human-trafficking, prostitution and any other crimes in South Florida hotels. Executive keeps an open line of communication with law enforcement and often offers assistance for special operations. In fact, the company and the family have received many commendation letters from various police departments thanking them for their assistance with special operations throughout the years.
The Del Rey donation to Survivors’ Pathway will be designated to be used to pay for temporary housing for victims.
“This donation from the Del Rey family comes at a time of great need for the victims of human trafficking, domestic and sexual abuse in our community,” said Francesco Duberli, Chief Executive Officer of Survivors’ Pathway. “With skyrocketing housing and hotel costs, our funds have been hit hard and this donation brings great relief to our organization so we can help more victims.”
Executive Fantasy Hotels is also planning to launch a fundraising campaign for the non-profit and match all funds that are donated up to $10,000.
