Kristi House is dedicated to eradicating child abuse and child sex trafficking – working nationally on solutions, and locally to heal child-victims.
Operating the only Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in Miami-Dade County, Kristi House is responsible for coordinating child-victims’ legal, medical, and social services needs. Founded in 1995 as a private, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, Kristi House provides an integrated solution for families navigating the complex services involved in the healing process. The Center is nationally recognized for its evidence-based, therapeutic expertise in treating child trauma. All services are provided at no charge to child-victims and their families.
Kristi House is one of the first CACs the country to address the issue of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), otherwise known as child sex trafficking. Kristi House established Project GOLD (Girls Owning their Lives and Dreams), the first drop-in center for CSEC girls in Florida, with specialized services for sex-trafficked youth.
