This paper examines the GenerateHope (GH) residential program and provides early outcome results for residents living at the GH program between six and 12 months. GH has integrated the types of assistance requested by sex-trafficking victims with clinical insights into trauma therapy, in turn establishing a live-in residence with a 30-hour per week schedule that includes academics, psychotherapy, and adjunct therapies. In this study, GH used three assessments to measure improvements in residents’ overall well-being: Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Checklist – Civilian Version (PCL-C), and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES).
