Offers safe housing and supportive services to domestic sex trafficking survivors, empowering them to move forward with hope and dignity, and raise awareness of sex trafficking through education.
Extended Hands of Hope safe house program at Avanti House provides restorative services that are built on the foundation of the agency’s Vision, Mission and Core Values. The program is also guided by certain philosophies of treatment: trauma-informed, moral-based, and strengths-based treatment. The services and interventions derived from these values and philosophies are intended to decrease the impact of trauma on survivors of sex trafficking. A child who has endured such complex trauma often has difficulty managing emotions and displays behaviors, including but not limited to, symptoms of PTSD, depression, aggression and/or running away. In order to best meet the needs of this population Extended Hands of Hope-Avanti House provides services through a three phase-multimodal-model.
