Adverse Childhood Experiences
The principal types of ACEs are abuse, neglect, and seriously troubled households. More specifically, ACEs are emotional, physical, and sexual abuse; emotional and physical neglect; and homes that have domestic violence, or mental and/or substance (alcohol or drug) disorders, or parental separation or divorce, or a family member who is incarcerated. While ACEs occur before the age of 18, their effects can endure.
In 2018 we started serving girls experiencing foster care and the juvenile justice system. More than 60% of girls lured into sex trafficking have experienced the foster care system. Help us end the pipeline.
Preparation for Emancipation
Sophia’s Hope incorporate preventive measures designed to endure that girls emancipated from the state have the tools they need to live responsibly and independently so they are less likely to drop out of school, fall pray to teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and sex trafficking. Our program help provide financial literacy, team work, self care, and leadership while encouraging entrepreneurship.
