Help restore the lives of survivors
of human trafficking
What Is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain labor or a commercial sex act.
Trafficking is a multi-billion-dollar industry and the demand isn’t going away. The roots of prostitution and trafficking are often found in severe childhood abuse, loss and/or neglect. It is these traumatic childhood experiences that push individuals (predominately children) towards homelessness, addiction, prostitution, trafficking and incarceration. (Thistle Farms, 2020).
When Hope Against Trafficking started, our founders realized that there was a lack of long-term, safe, restorative environments for adult survivors of human trafficking. The women who have been rescued or escaped their traffickers lack hope as they have no safe-haven, no financial stability, and fear for their lives.
We provide a comprehensive and dedicated program. We have taken a two-pronged approach for the restoration of survivors and education for our community.
Our 2-year residential holistic program provides rent-free housing and comprehensive services focused on the physical, mental, spiritual and economic transformational needs of female survivors of trafficking, giving them hope for their future and empowering them to thrive once again.
Stepping out of darkness and into the light of HOPE. Our residents focus on

What is the value of a life?
At Hope Against Trafficking, we believe all lives are valuable and everything possible should be done to assist survivors, most of who have been abused throughout their childhood, to heal and grow.
