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 with the vision of reducing the 90% of women who try to get out from returning to the street through force or for survival or are killed.
We have taken a two-pronged approach for the restoration of survivors and education for our community.
Residential: Our 2-year residential holistic program provides rent-free housing and comprehensive services focused on the physical, mental, and economic transformational needs of female survivors of trafficking, giving them hope for their future and empowering them to thrive once again.
Community Education: The community education arm of our mission focuses on educating the community on the issue of human trafficking. This includes the vulnerabilities, signs of manipulation, lures, and ways to identify possible victims.
Under U.S. law, trafficking in persons is defined as “sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age,” or “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.”
Our events help to educate the community on trafficking. If you are interested in learning about our organization, making a difference, and having fun, be sure to check out our upcoming events.
We speak and have tables at many events throughout the year. If you have an event you believe would benefit Hope Against Trafficking, please complete our Event Request Form and send it to the email listed at the bottom of the form.
