Restorative services for women & children.

Filling the gap so women who have children in their care have a place to live and heal when rescued from Human Trafficking.

Becoming part of the solution.

The problem

There is a gap in restorative services available for women who have children and have been sexually exploited, and a solution is both crucial and attainable.

The inspiration

Women who have children and have been sexually exploited need access to services that can keep them together and help break generational trauma.

The future

We envision a place of comprehensive care: living spaces, counseling and therapy, life skills classes, healthcare, a self-sustained food program, and more.

The start

We have audacious fundraising goals! We anticipate an annual funding need of around $420,000 per year beginning in 2024 to bridge the gap.

Human trafficking in the U.S.

 

Hundreds of thousands of individuals are trafficked every year in the United States. Of the 1% who are identified, few receive care. 80% of survivors end up being revictimized if they do not have a safe place to go.

Barriers to equitable care.

 

Without homes available that can accommodate children, mothers remain in their trafficking situation and/or without restorative care for fear of losing their children to the system or their trafficker.

How to help.

We need you! Onehope Refuge is laying the foundation to provide women who have children and have been sexually exploited with access to restorative care. To move forward, we need donors like you to join us on the journey. With your support, we will be able to continue creating a space that encompasses hope and meets the mental, physical, and spiritual needs of mothers and their children.
