Trainings and Speaking 

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.
— George Washington Carver

At the heart of BridgeHope, we believe that education opens the door for information to be processed in a trauma informed manner, which then creates an opportunity for a survivor's life to be changed by freedom! 

Through having someone from the BridgeHope speakers team speak at your event, conference, and organization, you will receive high quality certificate trainings in topics such as exposing and responding to human trafficking, trauma-informed care, and complex trauma. Here you will learn first hand about what you can do to respond to this crime, as well as how to create organizational protocols you can put into place that are not only trauma-informed, but also survivor-informed.



“I was beyond impressed with Jessa’s presentation of her journey. I have heard a lot of people (professionals, survivors, volunteers, etc.) talk about trafficking, but rarely—if ever at all—would I fully endorse everything said in those talks. But after hearing Jessa share, I honestly felt like I had nothing else to add to the conversation and that everything she said was 100% completely spot on. If any organization is wanting to know how to move forward with fighting the injustice of sex trafficking, they would do well to listen to Jessa and to build their efforts around the ideas and perspectives she shares.”

— Terry Mosteller, J.D. | Director of Prevention at Exodus Cry

"THANK YOU!!! Your story (Jessa Dillow Crisp) is not simply compelling, it is eye opening and mind boggling. As someone who has worked on human trafficking through the Blue Campaign and on Capitol Hill, I can assure you that your efforts are both acknowledged and leveraged to assist other victims across this country and beyond."

— R.W. | Department of Homeland Security

"Very informative. Great presenter. Really appreciated her life story. So much knowledge for providers to recognize youth being trafficked."

—Attendee | Colorado Department of Youth Services 2017 Conference

"We have Jessa speak at our homeland security conference each year, as she is a very powerful speaker who is requested by all attendees to return annually.  She is able to adjust her training to the specific audience on hand, and is able to connect with everyone in the room.  She is able to make you feel and understand what she went through, and helps the audience understand how they can recognize and help others in this situation.  Her program evaluations are always glowing. I highly recommend Jessa for your next event."
