Advocacy & Support
Hope project serves anyone affected by sexual assault or abuse.
Hope Project Advocates listen, offer validation, support and information about resources that are available to help. We offer support whether or not a crime has been reported to law enforcement. Hope Project has a partnership with PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center that allows Hope Advocates to provide support to every victim of sexual assault who presents in the emergency department, any time day or night.
Hope Project is committed to providing education and resources in the community as we strive to prevent sexual violence together. We are available to do presentations or trainings to businesses, organizations, church and community groups.
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault or abuse, know that you are not alone. People can and do heal from sexual abuse and we are here to help in that process.

Real Life Advocacy Program
Advocacy & Services
Why “Real Life”? People who are victims of sex trafficking commonly use the phrase “the life” to describe their situation. We understand that “the life” they are living has Real challenges, Real risks, and that they are Real people with value and strength. We decided to use this name to describe our program because we can help survivors talk about Real life struggles, Real solutions, and help people experience the Real life they seek. If you or someone you know has ever traded sex for a place to stay, food, money, drugs, etc. you can speak with a Real Life Advocate - all services are free and confidential. Advocates in this program are available to provide information and education about how to recogize common signs of sex trafficking to schools, businesses, organizations, churches, etc. to help you learn how to safely respond and report to police and/or the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
