A Fresh Start

Holistic rehabilitation for survivors of sex trafficking

Hope Center provides survivors with the chance at a fresh start. Our goal is to remove the obstacles that keep victims trapped in the exploitation cycle by providing a comprehensive program that imparts practical skills, facilitates job placement, and offers emotional support.

Double your Impact

In 2024, the Israeli Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs is matching donations, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $200,000. That means your donation will have TWICE the impact in supporting crucial job training and placement for survivors of trafficking.

Job placement

With new skills in hand, we help survivors find job roles so that they can earn a living they are proud of. Once the placement is made, we offer ongoing employment support for both the employer and the employee to ensure success for everyone involved.

Mentorship is vital in the recovery process of survivors. That's why our program includes 2 years of continuous occupational and psychological support—from the beginning of the course, extending through job placement, and beyond.

Kitepride is a fashion social enterprise dedicated to empowering survivors of prostitution and human trafficking by offering safe employment opportunities. Through crafting upcycled bags and providing comprehensive support, Kitepride creates a positive impact both socially and environmentally.

  • Survivors gain valuable skills and financial independence by learning sewing and design.
  • Materials such as kitesurfing kites, sails, parachutes, and wetsuits are repurposed, contributing to environmental sustainability.
  • Dedicated social workers offer emotional and psychological support during working hours.
  • Over 42,000 bags have been crafted since 2018, with nearly 20,000 materials repurposed.
