What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Hope Inspire Love responds to the nation's human trafficking and sexual exploitation crisis and helps women whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by abuse and trauma. Hope Inspire Love is dedicated to combatting human trafficking and sexual exploitation using a three-pronged operational strategy and transformative approach, namely ‘Trauma-Informed Mentorship,’ ‘Prevention & Education,’ and ‘Outreach & Awareness.’ Experts estimate that nearly one in five girls is sexually abused at least once in her life, and trafficking in humans is estimated to generate profits of $150 billion per year. One in four of those being trafficked are children, 4.8 million of those are trafficked for sex and 99% of sex trafficking victims are women and girls. Criminals often prey on and exploit the most vulnerable—the poor, the young, and those from disadvantaged, marginalized communities. Through our programs, we also aim to restore survivors to safety, strength, and a safe future.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Hope Inspire Love is dedicated to combatting human trafficking and sexual exploitation using a three-pronged operational strategy and transformative approach, namely ‘Trauma-Informed Mentorship,’ ‘Prevention & Education,’ and ‘Outreach & Awareness.’

In order to be effective, we have developed outcomes-focused strategies and solutions. Our programs are informed by evidence, based on strong theoretical frameworks, existing trauma-informed and trauma-focused treatment solutions, and promote practices that are proven to produce positive outcomes for teens and young adults.

Our goals are framed along with each strategic solution where we invest in and rigorously evaluate our efforts.

OUTREACH AND AWARENESS PROGRAM - We strive to shift the culture by amplifying the voice of the voiceless with powerful messages through video, training, events, digital media, and the written word.

Goal 1: Improve understanding of trafficking issue. Convey a simple, clear, and presentable message surrounding human trafficking and sexual exploitation in a format that is easily understood by the community individuals.

Goal 2: Expand access to educational and informational resources. Educate on the reality of sex trafficking and ways to abolish it, and how to recognize and report potential scenarios of human and sex trafficking.

Goal 3: Motivate and champion others to take action. Empower individuals to take action so that they can also empower their community and mobilize others to take action.

PREVENTION PROGRAM - We educate, train, and create resources that equip people with information on how to prevent sex trafficking and sexual exploitation from ever happening in the first place.

Goal 1: Prevent and reduce the victimization of school-aged children and teens vulnerable to sexual exploitation through early intervention programming.

Goal 2: Develop community involvement through education and outreach efforts to include community members who aid in human trafficking, detection and response.

Goal 3: Train health care providers and health care agencies on how to spot the signs of trafficking when a victim may present for services.

Goal 4: Train corporations and businesses on how they can prevent human trafficking in their organizations and within their supply chains.

Goal 5: Provide sex trafficking and e-Safety information and education to schools, youth groups, churches, and after-school programs (middle and high school students).

Goal 6: Train the trainer—ensuring that educators are equipped and trained on the issue of trafficking and implement in their classrooms, churches, and organizations—with the essential subject matter so they can implement it into their instructional teaching.

TRAUMA-INFORMED MENTORSHIP PROGRAM - We provide trauma-informed mentorship services that establish supportive relationships with teens and young adults who are survivors of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Goal 1: Form trusting, supportive, committed relationships with trauma-informed mentors on a 1:1 model.

Goal 2: Provide a safe person to talk to, share needs, dreams, and goals with, and help in the process of healing.

Goal 3: Meet the challenges of adolescence and young adulthood through a coordinated activities, life development, and learning experiences that help them to achieve social, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being.

Goal 4: Help mentees gain the ability to analyze their own strengths and weaknesses, set personal and vocational goals, and nurture their self-confidence and self-esteem to pursue and achieve their goals.

Goal 5: Prevent mentor stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout.

Through years of experience, we have developed a working model that brings together multi-disciplinary team members and volunteers who support our three strategic programs. Our team members have the necessary critical trauma-informed training and evidenced based understandings to course the work with survivors of trafficking, health care and front line professionals, educators, businesses, and individuals in the foster care system.
