The Downing Clark HOPE Center (DCHC) seeks to be a leader in the movement to meet the growing need for high quality residential treatment centers for victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST)
offering comprehensive treatment that restores the whole girl: Body, Mind, Heart, and Spirit
. DCHC is committed to reaching the growing number of hurting and broken girls
By transforming the lives of 500 traumatized young girls over the next three to five years through comprehensive clinical, spiritual, and physical programs. The founders of Downing Clark HOPE Center will relentlessly pursue the advocacy, awareness and funding for victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) and continue to join the movement to create a network of Georgia’s Christian foster homes to serve orphan girls.
The mission of DOWNING CLARK HOPE CENTER & ACADEMY (DCHCA) is to restore HOPE, courage, love and faith in young girls that have been sexually exploited. These girls, many of them who are sexually exploited for commercial purposes are victims of a severe kind of human trafficking. These girls ages 6-17 may have serious emotional, behavioral & mental challenges. Each and every one of these girls described have suffered trauma to the degree that has splintered their souls into shambles. It is our job to make sure each girl we are privileged to serve has every opportunity possible to help restore her hope and transform her life!
Our program’s philosophy is of the belief that each youth has a positive treatment experience. We believe empathic, hopeful, integrated and inclusive treatment relationships are one of the most important contributions to treatment success in any setting. We believe that every human being has value and a purpose in life
– we believe it is our purpose to work together and use our Center as a vehicle to help those in need realize their value and believe in their purpose. It is our philosophy that youth and their families thrive in an atmosphere of acceptance and support!
