2019 Funded Project

  • Hope Restored Canada’s mission is the eradicating sexual exploitation and trafficking through its H.O.P.E. Model (Holistic Restoration, Outreach, Partnership, and Education).  The average age of entry into prostitution in Canada is 12-14 years old.  This organization currently has connected with over 280 women who are in the sex trade by “choice”, circumstance or coercion and range in age from teens to grown women in their 20’s through 50’s.
