Help the children of Kristi House get to the services they need--with New Wheels!

Kristi House provides critical healing services to child victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking.  Many of these children and their caregivers have a very difficult time finding safe, reliable transportation to our centers.  To help, we deploy 3 minivans to transport children to and from therapy. The vans have seen better days, however, and it's time for some new wheels. Many of our board members and benefactors have pledged to help, but that won’t be enough. We need your help, too!

Please give whatever you can between now and May 30, 2017. Every dollar counts. You can help our children get the therapy and services they need, enabling them to continue to heal, thrive, and overcome the devastating violation of child sexual abuse.

Who is Kristi?

Kristi was a 9-year old girl. She loved to play with her dolls, ride her bike, and help her teacher erase the board after school. Kristi was also 8-months pregnant – impregnated by her stepfather – giving birth to a child at the age of 10. Sadly her case is not unique. Many of our clients find themselves in similar situations.

Kristi’s pregnancy actually brought her some attention and help she needed and couldn’t ask for herself. However, there wasn’t a Kristi House at the time. This was before wrap-around case coordination and mental health services were in place, before a multidisciplinary team addressed all the legal, physical and emotional needs of child victims and their non-offending parents. Consequently, Kristi has had a difficult life.

More often than not, there is no physical evidence of sexual abuse, so the trauma children endure is locked away in the family’s conspiracy to try to ignore, deny, avoid and forget. Kristi House provides a place for children to get the help they need and was named in honor of that 9-year-old girl.
