Help Us Eradicate Child Trafficking

  • Over 79,000 Texas children and youth are trafficked each year for sex (according to an independent study conducted by the University of Texas in Austin, 2016).
  • 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
  • 25% of the children that come into our care are picked up in Houston, a major HUB of trafficking in the United States.
  • Out of 59,919 child victims in Texas during 2019, 47% were between the ages of 6 and 12

 Join Hope Rising in continuing to support our programs which include 2 state-of-the-art Emergency Assessment and Stabilization Centers, developed and designed to provide triage care for the first 30-90 days of care upon rescue from sex trafficking and exploitation.

Help us in the fight against human trafficking.
Our mission is to provide long-term care and recovery for minor
children who have been rescued from human sex trafficking and
exploitation. Hope Rising is committed to instilling hope, offering a
future to these minors, and fostering wholeness and healing.

Hope Rising believes strongly in long-term, committed relationships being key to the success of the minors they work with. Trained trauma-informed caregivers and foster families are a significant piece of the puzzle, therefore Hope Rising invests heavily in the training and ongoing support of our caregivers and foster care network.
