Our Team

Who We Are.

We are a team of survivors, lovers, and passionate fighters. We work tirelessly to protect children and to support those who have been sexually abused. We believe hope is real and that every story matters.


Approximately 20 volunteers generously give their time and energy to fulfill the Trees of Hope mission. Volunteers serve Trees of Hope chapters in South Florida and Virginia in a variety of capacities including prevention education, healing group facilitation, office administrative support, language translation, special event planning and coordinating, fundraising and much more.  Although we can't list them all here, we are very grateful for every person who works hard to serve with Trees of Hope.
