About Us

WHAT WE DO: Hope Rising is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and licensed Texas Foster Care Agency dedicated to the rescue and restoration of minors rescued from human sex trafficking. We provide a specialized trauma-informed continuum of care from rescue and emergency assessment and long term specialized foster care to transitional living and continued support after a child turns 18.

WHO WE SERVE: We serve children who have suffered sexual trauma and/or exploitation and specialize in helping survivors of human sex trafficking.

OUR MISSION: Our mission is to provide long-term care and recovery for minor children who have been rescued from human sex trafficking and exploitation. Hope Rising is committed to instilling hope, offering a future to these minors, and fostering wholeness and healing.

OUR LOCATION: Headquartered in Washington County, our Brenham office, as a licensed Child Placement Agency and serves Counties within a 150-mile radius. This area of service includes Harris County, Fort Bend, and Austin County.

LONG TERM COMMITMENT: Hope Rising believes strongly in long-term, committed relationships being key to the success of the minors they work with. Foster families are a significant piece of the puzzle, therefore Hope Rising invests heavily in the training and ongoing support of our foster care network.

TEACHING, TRAINING, AND EQUIPPING: Education and awareness are key to preventing human sex trafficking. Hope Rising provides certification training to foster parents, caregivers, law enforcement, bio-parents, and mentors ensuring that all will have the tools needed to address the child’s trauma and achieve lasting results.
