Referrals - OEW Hope House™

Step 1, before you proceed with an application we ask that you complete the referral form. A staff member will be in touch with next steps. Thank you.


We are currently accepting female domestic victims of sex trafficking ages 18 - 24. The applicant, if accepted, will receive help with completing high school, working towards her GED, or continuing further education. We are located in the Carolinas. 


Step 1

Please fill out the referral form above. A staff member will be in touch within 24 hours about space and process to move to the next step. 


Step 2

Before moving forward on the application process, it is very important that we have a copy of a recent Psychological Evaluation (no less than three months old). We are seeking to obtain the following information from the Psych. Eval.



Step 3

Once we receive a referral and Psychological Evaluation, a social worker will send you the Guardian/Agency Application, Resident Application, and Resident Handbook.



Step 4

We are a voluntary program that requires "buy-in" from the applicant. Our Resident Application allows us to get to know her better. We also have a Resident Handbook that explains program details. We require her signature on the last page of the Resident Handbook and the completed Resident Application before we can move to Step 5. 

Step 5

In order to move forward to the acceptance step, our Lead Resident Manager must have a phone interview with the applicant. 


Step 6

If the applicant is accepted, our staff will work with you to plan an arrival schedule. While we do provide most of the applicant needs while she is in our care, we can not assist with funding for travel to the program or back home from the program once she completes, nor do we cover medical expenses.
