Hope Bag Program

The Hope Bag Program provides essential need items to victims of human trafficking at the moment of rescue. Hope Bags are sent to law enforcement agencies across the United States and are given to children, teens and young adults at the point of rescue. The bags include new clothes, hygiene products, snacks and comfort items. The bags build trust with law enforcement, leading to accurate interviews and the ability to prosecute perpetrators more effectively.

Reclaiming Hope’s Mentor Program exists to provide a healthy system of support to female survivors of domestic sex trafficking. The Mentor Program, which matches a mentor to each mentee, creates a larger group of community. Mentors come alongside their mentee supporting them in whatever social, economic and physical living situation they are in. This support is to help each mentee with their physical, psychological, educational, emotional, medical, financial and spiritual needs. The goal is to help each mentee begin to regain self worth, direction and ongoing healing as they reintegrate back into society and continue to recover from the trauma they have experienced.
