a mission of hope
UnBound opened the Hope House in May of 2015 as a long-term aftercare housing program for survivors of sex trafficking. The mission of the Hope House is to journey with women who have been sexually exploited as they receive freedom through the love of Jesus that will empower them to impact our city and world. The Hope House is committed to bring hope and a future to survivors of sexual exploitation.
Long term aftercare is one of the greatest areas of need in ending sex trafficking in Seattle. On average, there are less than 15 beds per night available to women who want to leave "the life." The Hope House provides up to two years of free shelter, mental health counseling, case management, life skills training, and access to medical care, education, job training, and other resources for four adult women.
healing and freedom
When reflecting on her time at the Hope House, one woman said "Before the Hope House, I had no hope and didn't want to live anymore." Now she has a second chance. At the Hope House, women have reconnected with family members, overcome drug addictions, and secured a full time jobs and independent living situations upon leaving.
In the two years the Hope House has been open, nine women have healed from decades of trauma and abuse, overcome drug addictions, rebuilt relationships with family members, secured full time jobs, and encountered God's love.
When survivors of sexual exploitation receive the support and treatment they need, they can lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
