Community Grantmaking Spotlight: GenerateHope

In 2010, President Barack Obama declared January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month. In honor of this month, we highlight GenerateHope, a community organization that provides a safe place for survivors of sex trafficking to heal and find restoration in long-term housing and trauma-informed therapy, education, and vocational support. GenerateHope was founded in 2009 by 2018 CNN Hero Susan Munsey and members of Harbor City Church. Since its founding, GenerateHope has been a refuge for over 105 women, providing resources to break the tragic cycle of vulnerability to traffickers. As the first and only on-site, integrated recovery program for survivors in San Diego, GenerateHope addresses the complex needs of this unique population through individual case management, education, psychotherapy, a variety of adjunct therapies, and community support for medical, dental and psychiatric needs.
