Generate Hope in Coronado 

One of Generate Hope’s locations, the transition home, acts as a transitory stage for trafficking survivors. 

The home is located in Coronado as Generate Hope’s Executive Director Annie Rodriguez feels that Coronado is the best place for the women to transition back into society. 

The city of Coronado has really embraced us and embraced many of the services the women are in.”

“We really want it to be in a safe city and a place where they can thrive. That’s what the community of Coronado grants,” Rodriguez said. “The city of Coronado has really embraced us and embraced many of the services the women are in, like small businesses.”

Generate Hope provides opportunities in their transition home for the women to start living and working, and Coronado has been the safe haven that they have been looking for.
