Episode 37: You Can Find Joy After Trauma
Let’s talk more on another pressing global pandemic: sex trafficking. It’s happening in high schools, middle schools, malls, parks, among family and friend circles, through the internet, across boarders, within boarders, on every continent, every single day. San Diego, California alone is seeing an annual eight hundred million dollars generated by the underground sex trade. The city is considered an international gateway for sex trafficking.
Join host Kelsey and guest Rachel of San Diego as they discuss what sex trafficking looks like in a big city like San Diego, and how each of us can contribute to the fight against this crime that is most assuredly happening in your own community— big city or small town. You’ll learn how women survivors are experiencing healing and restoration from the immense trauma of sex trafficking at Generate Hope, a residential recovery home and safe house in the heart of San Diego. The program receives dozens of inquiries and referrals every month, and has seen over one hundred women enter its doors to receive life-saving therapy and vocational training in a family-like environment.
