Dahlia's Hope provides holistic, trauma-informed aftercare services to survivors of sex trafficking. With a focus on trauma healing and best practices, we provide a multi-tiered approach to reach individuals in varying stages of recovery. Our goal is to help each survivor create a life worth living that allows them to be successful and independent.
In 2015 the U.S. State Department estimated that 1.2 million individuals were being trafficked here, domestically. In stark contrast, there are currently less than 1,000 spaces total, in aftercare programs in the United States, dedicated solely to the rehabilitation and transition of trafficking survivors. There is a desperate need for services for the hundreds of thousands of girls like our Founding Survivor, Faith.
When she was 13 years old, Faith met a boy in the hometown of her native country. He promised her love and a family. Within weeks, she was lured away from her family, and within months was brought to a large US city, immediately becoming a victim of sex trafficking. Years later, and just a few weeks before her 18th birthday, Faith escaped her traffickers and began her life of freedom. She has been advocating for other sex trafficking survivors and their needs ever since. Faith spent five years searching for the aftercare services she needed, with very little success. She dreamed of creating one place where survivors could have all of their healing needs met. In 2019, Faith helped inspire Dahlia's Hope, where she, as well as dozens of other survivors, have already received all-inclusive aftercare services.
Dahlias Hope is located in Utah and provides the following aftercare services to sex trafficking survivors:
