GenerateHope was founded in 2009, by Susan Munsey and members of Harbor City Church. Born from a desire to provide trauma care services to a very underserved local population, the founding members of GenerateHope soon came to realize there is a great need for comprehensive healing for women who have survived the horrors of being trafficked and sold for sex. SanDiego needed to address this American epidemic with a personal, local impact.
Since its founding, GenerateHope has been a refuge for over 105 women, providing resources to break the tragic cycle of vulnerability to traffickers and gang pimps. As the first and only on-site, integrated recovery program for survivors in San Diego, GenerateHope addresses the complex needs of this unique population through individual case management, education, psychotherapy, a variety of adjunct therapies, and community support for medical, dental and psychiatric needs.
