GenerateHope was founded in 2009, by Susan Munsey and members of Harbor Church. Starting as a desire to provide services to an underserved population without help or support, the founding members of GenerateHope soon came to realize a great need for the comprehensive healing of trafficked women. Since its founding, GenerateHope has served over 80 women and helped them to escape a life of trafficking. As the first and only recovery program for trafficked women in San Diego, GenerateHope is prepared to address the specific needs of this unique population through education, psychotherapy, case management, adjunct therapies and community support for medical, dental and psychiatric needs.
In 2010, GenerateHope moved to its current location in South San Diego, where we serve female trafficking survivors over the age of 18. Our current site consists of the GenerateHope safe-house, the transitional house (available for survivors who are ready for more independence), and our school and office building, where a variety of staff, interns, and volunteers help us care for our women. GenerateHope's dedicated team of care professionals helps each woman to find hope and healing, as well as achieve her goals for the future.
In 2016 GenerateHope was able to purchase this property creating a solid foundation for healing women from the sex trade. Many thanks to the donors and foundations that assisted us in this process. We now have a forever home and treatment program for women exiting the sex trade and looking for a new life.
Through our treatment program, GenerateHope approaches the restoration of trafficked women with a long-term, individualized approach. We recognize the specific journey and needs of each woman that comes to us. Our team works with her to create a plan that will help her achieve her needs, dreams, and goals. GenerateHope acknowledges that the healing process takes time and is committed to fully caring for each woman on this journey.
The GenerateHope program is based on the SA (Servant's Anonymous) Franchise Model. SA is a christian faith-based program widely recognized as one of the few programs worldwide meeting the specific needs of this population. The SA Model has been replicated throughout Canada, in Nepal, Hungary, New York and San Diego.
