What We Do

Hope Against Trafficking is a 24-month residential program that provides restorative housing and comprehensive services focused on physical, mental, emotional and economic transformation. We serve adult female survivors of sex and labor trafficking induced by threat, force and/or coercion. We also provide prevention education through speaking engagements at churches, community organization, businesses, and schools in southeast Michigan.

Sex and labor trafficking occurs throughout the Detroit metro area. Most victims become entrapped between the ages of 12-14. Many have become addicted to drugs and alcohol to numb their pain having suffered physical abuse at the hands of their exploiters. Death threats are used to keep them silent. With no safe haven, identity or money, they lack the hope that their circumstances will ever change. Rescue efforts on local, state and national levels are ongoing and increasingly effective. Once rescued, however, many survivors face little or no options for safe housing, support and services which allow them the chance to fully recover from their trauma and rebuild their lives. This is why we are here.
