Education & Awareness
Street’s Hope/Voluntad provides survivor informed, evidence based services designed to support and empower victims of all forms of human trafficking.
We meet each person on their unique journey, encouraging safety and working with our clients to prevent further trauma. We are client centered, and recognize that every person has the right to make choices about their own lives. We respect their autonomy and right to self-determination, and encourage all of our clients in their work toward defining what a healthy, meaningful life looks like for them.
Street’s Hope/Voluntad recognizes the personal and societal vulnerabilities that are exploited by human traffickers. These include political and economic conditions, legal status, race, gender identity, sexual orientation and more. For that reason, we are proud to serve all people who are impacted by this human rights issue. Street’s Hope/Voluntad acknowledges the complex web of human and societal factors that affect human trafficking victims. We envision a world where all people can make choices about their own lives, with freedom and dignity.
Street’s Hope/Voluntad was established in 2004 and has operated continuously since that time.
