What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery and an estimated $150 billion dollar global business. According to the Department of Homeland Security, human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Victims are young children, teenagers, men and women. Over 300,000 children are victimized by sex trafficking every year. 40% of children are trafficked by a family member. 99% are never identified. Of the 1% who are identified, few receive care. 80% of survivors end up being re-victimized if they do not have a safe place to go. Dahlia’s Hope focuses on treating survivors of sex trafficking; the Dahlia’s Hope aftercare program is designed to meet the unique needs of these survivors, with the aim to help them heal from their trauma and provide the resources they need and be able to successfully re-enter society.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Clinical Therapy for Survivors of Sex Trafficking

Dahlia’s Hope provides holistic aftercare services to survivors of sex trafficking who are ready to create a new life, including a focus on therapy and trauma recovery. Clinical therapy programs specifically involve the services of a licensed clinical therapist who assess survivor needs and create an individual treatment. Some of the methods of therapy used include Eye Movement Desensitizationand Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which has been shown to be particularly effective in trauma recovery, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Group Therapy. Recreational Therapy is also an effective means of trauma healing, and Dahliah's Hope provides garden therapy, animal therapy, and art therapy.

Charting impact

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

We aim to provide aftercare services to survivors of sex trafficking, including emergency housing, resources for medical or dental care, clinical therapy, educational or vocational training and life skills training- so that survivors may heal from their trauma and be able to succesfully re-enter society.

Our organizational goals to accomplish this are to:
1) Increase organizational capacity to serve survivors
2) Increase the breadth and quality of services provided
3) Be good financial stewards of the funds we receive

1) We will increase organizational capacity by identifying and hiring critical administrative and clinical therapy staff for all of our programs to be fully staffed and available

2) We will increase the breadth and quality of services by expanding the type of program and resources avaialble to survivors, and setting and tracking milestones of survivors in our programs.

3) We will be good financial stewards by keeping our administrative costs to under 20% of our annual budget, and by encouraging volunteerism by tracking and reporting on number of volunteers and volunteer hours annually.

In 2021 we were able to hire critical staff to scale Dahlia's Hope to a full time operation, including a full time Chief Operations Officer. We have served more than 35 survivors. With clinical therapist, recreational therapist, theraputic animal services, resources for vocational and educational services, and ability to provide access to medical and dental services, Dahlia's Hope has been successful in being a full-service aftercare provider for survivors. We also have a full-time volunteer coordinator to help with service hours, a full time clinical program director to oversee the work of 5 clinical therapists, and a farm manager to oversee the therapy animals, and an administrative and volunteer staff to manage events, website, fundraising, finances and social media/marketing.

Across 2019, 2020 and 2021 we increased our capacity to serve survivors by ten fold. We started with 3 survivors in 2019 and are now above 30 survivors served.

Our services began as emergency housing in 2019. They have since expanded to give access to medical and dental resources, vocational and job training, educational programs, and individual, group therapy and recreational therapy in 2020 and 2021.

Our volunteer hours have been over 4000 hours the last 2 years, with over 400 volunteers each year.
From the time we've been collecting financial data, our overhead costs have remained under 13% of our total budget.

Our first 3 years of existence have been critical growth and capacity building years. Now in our 4th year, we are equipped to deepen and maintain the growth we've seen.
