In the beauty and calm of the mountains of western North Carolina, sits a home that on the outside looks to be nothing unique or unusual. But in reality, within the walls of this particular home, young adolescent girls experience for the first time something they never thought possible: HOPE.
To provide a place of seclusion, restoration, and healing for domestic victims of sex trafficking. Hope House is a faith-based home offering a long term shelter option for minor victims ages 12-17 and is a transitional living program for victims ages 18 - 25.
In the United States there is a serious lack of safe shelter for women and girls who have been victims of this brutal offense, and who have very specialized needs for restoration of body, mind, and soul. Hope House will be a pinpoint of light in this dark situation and Shared Hope International is anxious to see them succeed.

You've shown me that I can get through life without fighting, without selling myself short. I just wanted to thank you for saving my life. - 15 year old trafficking survivor
God has shown me that the most shattered, battered, and broken people still stand a chance, I can be saved. I always looked at myself as if I was a failure, a waste of life...but when Hope House entered my life, they've shown me so much love & care that I did not even get from my own family. I never knew that there were people out there who would love & care for me the way they did not judge me on my past. Hope House gave me my self esteem and self worth back.
