Every Woman Deserves Dignity and Respect
Our work heals women escaping sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry by empowering them to transform their lives through our proven evidence-based holistic services.
As the only residential program serving adult women in Colorado, we nurture women trapped in the sex industry and help them transform and thrive.
It starts as young as 13. They are branded, trafficked, bought and sold as property. Abused over and over again, there is often no way out; just like a war vet, they suffer from PTSD and their average lifespan is a dismal 7 years.
Human trafficking is the exploitation of people for labor or commercial sex. Denver is a major hub for trafficking and it is getting worse. On average, 355 unaccompanied minors experience homelessness every night and 1 in 3 runaway teens are recruited within 48 hours of leaving home. 70% of homeless youth engage in prostitution simply to meet their daily needs. There is a severe shortage of victim services and online classifieds are making it easier to break the law.
Street’s Hope offers respite; a place to regain ones humanity and a place to start over. Street’s Hope restores dignity by facilitating the transition for each woman to cultivate a balanced life (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually), to become self-supporting apart from the sex industry, and to be an active community participant.
But there’s more to do! To systemically address this issue, more beds are necessary, a crisis shelter and intake facility are a needed critical first step for victims, and community-supported transitional housing is necessary for sustainability. There is so much work to do, but with your help we can and will succeed.

Becoming a victim of sex trafficking can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time.

We’d like to thank all those individuals who attended this important film screening and urge everyone to take action.
You can make a difference by signing this Change.org petition. It asks Congress to remove from the laws the protections that Backpage is currently enjoying at the cost of our children.
