Generate Hope ~ Human Trafficking in San Diego

Lisa and I had one the the Directors from Generate Hope share at our small group Bible study last night.  This is a little of what we learned...

The Problem
  • San Diego has been identified by the FBI as a high intensity child prostitution area.
  • San Diego is an international gateway city for sex trafficking.
  • At least 1 million American children are involved in prostitution each year.
  • Sex trafficking is a multi billion dollar business annually & is the fastest growing business of organized crime.
  • Until now, there has been no long-term recovery program available in San Diego specifically for these young women.

The Generate Hope Solution
  • Safe Housing in a compassionate environment
  • A Learning Center - Groups & support for life skills, communication & relationship skills, parenting skills, healing from the trauma of child sexual abuse & the sex trade, poor self-esteem, and more.
  • Child Care - for the women are also parents
  • Education - high school, college, or trade school
  • Job Training & Job Shadowing
  • Up to 7 years of continued support
You can make a difference in your local community by using your time, talents, and treasures to help GenerateHope for young women that badly need recovery and healing.
