Journey of Hope empowers women and girls at-risk for incarceration and further harm (homeless, trafficked, fleeing domestic violence, addicted, mentally ill, transitioning from jails and prison, and girls aging out of DCFS and JJS supervision.) Journey of Hope empowers females using client centered gender responsive case management, mentoring, and community advocacy.
What we do
The evidence is in: shame, blame, labels, and negative judgment do not produce meaningful change for anyone. Journey of Hope provides support to Utah women whose status puts them at-risk for criminal charges. We provide loving support and friendship to help women in jeopardy through mentoring and case management. Mentoring and case management are available for women who are victims of abuse, homeless, victims of trafficking, struggling with substance abuse or mental illness, and women who are on parole or probation. Women need safe housing, food security and employment. We use nationally recognized evidence-based approaches—understanding gender and issues of diversity, relational communication, strength-based communication, and a trauma informed approach—to empower our clients to create a success plan.
