There are currently no homes in San Diego that can provide safe, specialized, live-in residential care to victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). CSEC is a growing problem globally, and San Diego is no exception. GenerateHope will be opening the first home specifically for child survivors of CSEC.
GenerateHope is a 501C3 non-profit organization providing a long-term, comprehensive, housing and recovery program to young women who have been sexually trafficked, so that they are able to reintegrate into society and walk powerfully into their future.
We currently provide the only integrated shelter and rehabilitation program in San Diego specifically serving victims of sex trafficking. It is a home where survivors experience healing in a caring and non-judgmental environment. Our women come from diverse backgrounds, geographies, family structures, affiliations and beliefs. Common to all is a deep desire to leave the past behind and forge a new future as functional and contributing members of society.
We are now opening a home to care for children as well. Children who have been sexually exploited have experienced intense complex trauma and need very specific care from experts who are prepared to love them through their pain. We will provide a safe, comfortable, family environment where the girls can be restored mind, body and spirit. Specialized CSEC therapy will be constantly available in the home as the trauma these girls have endured often leads to extreme post-traumatic stress and nightmares. Survivors will also frequently have a range of associated medical conditions that similarly require specialized and competent care. Our onsite experienced staff will ensure access to appropriate medical therapies as needed.
To ensure each girl can move forward into a new future, dedicated caseworkers will help each girl with a tailored life plan that supports dreams and goals she could never have previously conceptualized. The focus of each plan is always on the needs of the individual.
With your support, TOGETHER we can help empower the survivors of this fundamental violation of all human rights and allow each girl to reclaim a previously lost life.
