The Problem:

200-300,000 minors are believed to be victims of human trafficking each year in the United States. Of the nearly 26,500 runaways reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in 2020, 1 in 6 were believed to be victims of child sex trafficking. In the US, there are only approximately 200 beds available for minors recovering from child sex trafficking.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a place of

support, healing, and hope for girls

recovering from commercial sexual exploitation.

Who We Are

Magnolia Hope is a long-term residential

program in an undisclosed location serving girls recovered from domestic child sex trafficking. We focus on providing trauma-informed therapies, on-site schooling, life-skills training, art & health classes, and much more.

The Magnolia

flower is a symbol of dignity, nobility, and purity. When a young girl experiences the trauma of commercial sexual exploitation, dignity and purity feel like things she'll never get back. Our desire at Magnolia Hope is to see the lives of these young girls restored, and their status as noble daughters

of the King realized.
