HOPE Program

Our HOPE (Healing, Overcoming & Providing Empowerment) Program is offered to all youth residing at Children’s Home of Stockton who are identified as CSEC or at-risk of human trafficking and offers direct CSEC services, with a goal to protect youth from prolonged abuse, and exploitation.

The HOPE Program emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety to build a sense of self-control and empowerment. The HOPE Program staff utilizes a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach to engage and build relationships with youth and emphasizing positive coping mechanisms. Experienced and trained staff implement individual one-on-one peer counseling sessions that focus on linkages, safety planning, navigating supportive systems, crisis intervention, assessments, specialty mental health services, harm reduction education, and community resources to ensure safety and improve empowerment.

Children’s Home of Stockton takes a trauma-informed and harm reduction approach when it comes to treatment interventions and treatment practices to recognize and respond to varying impacts of traumatic stress on youth and Non-Minor Dependents. It acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. While this approach is the overarching basis of our treatment program, Seeking Safety is the core evidence-based treatment model used throughout our program.
