Traditional Foster Care Homes 

Typically any age or gender at a basic or moderate level of care

  • Individuals who meet the requirements and complete the training to become a foster parent can care for any child, teen or sibling group in state custody for an undetermined amount of time. Foster parents provide care and support for children until a permanent plan is implemented. They should be committed to working in partnership with birth family members and child welfare professionals, as well as completing ongoing training requirements.

• Each referred child should be confirmed commercially sexually exploited or trafficked – commercial sexual exploitation is defined by means of force, fraud or coercion, the individual was used in order to create a profit for another.

• These homes can also take children that are suspected of being trafficked or at a high risk of becoming trafficked

• We will not accept referrals for children who have certain psychiatric diagnoses that would cause them to be a danger to caregivers or other residents.

Program Goals

•The goal of our program is to provide a home style safe and peaceful environment for survivors of human sex trafficking, sexual exploitation or trauma to recover using therapy techniques/methods that are proven to work. These therapies are relational and experiential.

•Each client will receive individualized services according to their goals for recovery and healing. Our goal for each client is to create stability so that the client is equipped for a life with healthy relationships, life skills and spiritual health.

• We seek to help a client ease out of “survival mode” behaviors and attitudes into a stable mode, where they become aware of self instead of dissociating or using drugs and alcohol to cope. The next phase is emotion regulation and new healthy coping skills and finally, relearning healthy interpersonal skills in preparation for independence.
