Our desire is to offer hope and change to people caught in the snare of Human Trafficking. We serve both current and past victims to empower them to become healthy survivors.
Safe House of Hope (SHO Hope) first began in 2007 by conducting street outreach. Through our outreach efforts, it became apparent that those working in prostitution wanted a way out but lacked the means to do so. To address this problem and better meet the needs of our clients, we took over YANA (You Are Never Alone) Inc.’s drop-in center on Hollins St. in September 2011. In March 2013, Safe House of Hope moved to a larger facility on Curtis Ave that allows us to provide more services to our clients. In the Fall of 2014 we partnered with the Grassroots Day Center to provide Drop in services in Jessup, MD.
Our mission is to help victims of sex trafficking become an active part of a healthy community through education and training, and to provide support for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of these victims.
