Dahlia's Hope 5K Fundraiser

Join Us in the Fight Against Sex Trafficking

Support survivors of sex trafficking with healing, therapy, education, and a joy-filled, independent future!

Our Impact

Dahlia’s Hope focuses on treating survivors of sex trafficking. Our aftercare program is designed to meet the unique needs of these survivors with a holistic approach.

Dahlia’s Hope is the first operational program in Utah that focuses solely on survivor aftercare. Historically, survivors had to piece together services from multiple providers in order to meet all of their unique aftercare needs. The piecing together of services and re-telling of their story is difficult and can be re-traumatizing. Most survivors do not have the ability or knowledge of  where to go for help, and/or cannot afford the help that they need to recover and heal from their extensive trauma. All of the services offered by Dahlia’s Hope are provided at the outpatient level, and are completely free of charge for survivors, so that they may focus solely on their healing.

Our Story

Inspired by the story of a now local survivor named Faith, who was trafficked at the age of 13  and escaped just before turning 18, Dahlia’s Hope seeks to provide the very services that Faith says she needed to recover from her abuse and transition into a new life: “Above all else, I  needed hope,” she says, “and that hope can come through something as simple as a safe place  to sleep and clean clothes, to life skills training, to the more crucial services of medical attention and clinical therapy. Every person is different, so needs vary greatly, but the one thing that is common among survivors is the need for safety, hope, and healthy connections.”
