Trafficking Survivors Overcome Fears

What an honor it was to do surf lessons with the girls from Hope Refuge this past month. You could say it was a bit of a shock to hear that most of the group had never even been IN the ocean, yet alone gone surfing.  A couple of our favorite quotes of the day were, “I feel like I’m famous because I’ve only seen this done on TV” and “this experience has helped me move on from my past.”  It’s our hope that these experiences will be a reminder that all things are possible.  Keep it up ladies!

“I feel like I’m famous because I’ve only seen this done on T.V.”

The overarching goal of Hope Refuge is to create a caring environment and supportive community in which trafficking survivors can heal from the trauma of their past experiences.  Hope Refuge collaborates with state and local anti-trafficking organizations to create opportunities where survivors are empowered to think forward towards an exceptional future.
