everyBODY NEEDS SOMEBODYProviding connection to support in healthy community.
We believe in the power of community. We believe that change does not happen in isolation. We believe that battles are won in community. We were created for community!
Our mentors are the heart of our organization and our mentoring relationships provide those who have been trapped and exploited in the commercial sex industry, who feel forgotten and unloved, an opportunity for support and encouragement on their journey toward self-sustainability.
Each survivor is paired with a team of two mentors who have a heart to walk alongside them as they transition into independent living. Mentors model healthy boundaries and healthy bonding all while providing a good sounding board. This powerful relational connection is ultimately what brings about the greatest measure of hope and healing.
Our mentors have an opportunity to give voice to the voiceless, to fight for freedom on behalf of the oppressed, to stand up and fight for love on behalf of the vulnerable and forgotten. They take action by coming alongside and fighting for justice on behalf of those trapped by addiction and exploitation.
We believe that if every survivor of sex trafficking has a support system, we will see a change in the recidivism rate and ultimately an end to sex trafficking in our community!
TRAFFICKING AWARENESS WORKSHOPS
Harbour Hope educates community members and agencies on how to recognize red flags for human trafficking, how to report suspected human trafficking cases, and how to respond with appropriate resources to individuals who have experienced sexual exploitation.
TRAFFICKING PREVENTION WORKSHOPS
Harbour Hope works with students, parents, and caregivers to educate them on the tactics traffickers use to recruit their victims, equipping them with the tools and knowledge they need to stay safe and to protect themselves from victimization.
