Halfway House for Survivors

The Garden of Hope set up its first halfway house for teenage sexual exploitation survivors in Taipei in 1988. Today, the Foundation has 17 shelters in 12 cities and counties of Taiwan. The shelters house domestic violence survivors and their children, teenage survivors of domestic and sexual violence, teenage pregnancy cases, and female migrant workers who are survivors of labor exploitation, sexual assault, and human trafficking. The Garden of Hope offers crisis, post-crisis and capacity-building services, helping survivors not only recover from the trauma of violence but eliminate the threat of violence in their lives for good. In addition, the Garden of Hope offers prevention programs, telephone counseling and online interventions for pregnant teenage girls and young parents. The programs help the young women to understand their rights, improve their self-esteem and be responsible and functional parents. The Garden of Hope is also the secretariat for the Asian Network of Women’s Shelters, a peak body for shelters and other organizations working to end violence against women in the region. The network reaches some 20 countries and has links with shelter organizations serving diaspora in North America and Europe.
