Human trafficking, is perhaps the most complex societal problem of our time.  Streets Hope is a safe haven that provides above and beyond services for women.  Sex trafficking is a growing issue that is taking place in our own backyard.  That’s why I have been an Streets Hope for advocate for over 3 years.  Raising awareness and educating others is now a permanent part of my heart and life. Women are warriors who deserve help in the fight to end modern day slavery.

Everybody deserves to have control over their own lives and to be able to choose what they do and don’t do.  People never deserve to be forced to do things for other people’s pleasure. It is not ok to buy and sell people.


Cici Peterson

Dave and I have been privileged with three beautiful kids.  We want to support women who have been victimized and marginalized, as a result of trafficking.  Their situation is heartbreaking; they need holistic services that include the intensive, trauma informed care and life skills that Street’s Hope provides.  We want to empower them, so they can lead the better life that every human being deserves.

After realizing how prevalent sex trafficking is in our own community and throughout the US I’m compelled to be part of the solution and support the impressive work that Street’s Hope is doing.

Sheryl Brickner

I am passionate about freeing modern day slaves from sex trafficking. My 40 years experience as a psychotherapist, working with addictions, mental health, trauma, and holistic health have led me to the fundamental belief that everyone deserves to live a life of freedom with respect. Street’s Hope provides an avenue for women to leave a trafficked life behind.

Growing up in Colorado, it was shocking to learn that sex trafficking is occurring right here in my home state. I am passionate about seeing women healed and freed from sex trafficking; I am so grateful to be a part of Street’s Hope’s work to help transform the lives of these resilient women.

Judy Henson

Supply Chain Director

If even in just a small way, I want to help make a Denver a safer place for my granddaughter and her friends.  Human trafficking is a heartbreaking issue for hundreds of women in our community that we must address.  Street’s Hope provides me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of women who desperately need help, right here in Denver.  No family is immune from this problem; my hope is that more grandparents will join the effort on behalf of all our children and grandchildren.

Nancy Whitman

Member Solutions Manager

Human trafficking and sexual exploitation are astounding atrocities occurring in our community. We must all take a stand and eradicate this blight on humanity. The dangerous criminal perpetrators must be held accountable, and victims must be granted justice. Most importantly, every victim’s dignity must be restored and no victim seeking shelter or services should be turned away.

Caroline McKinnon

Change Management Consultant

I have learned so much about the scope and impact of human and sex trafficking in Colorado, the U.S., and around the world. As I have connected with the women who are served by Street’s Hope and listened to their stories, they continually remind me that the human will to love, live and be whole is strong beyond belief.

Fighting Against Human Trafficking

Our Goal

To expand programming to provide a comprehensive approach to building a stronger, healthier community.  To  address the problem of sex trafficking in our city: 1) a crisis shelter and intake facility are needed as critical first steps for stabilizing victims. 2) More beds are needed for the intensive treatment that can make it possible for these women to change their lives and become survivors, and 3) community-supported transitional housing is necessary for sustainability.
