Monthly Meetup- Presentation by Courntey's House

  • Dec 4, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

Please join us to hear about the efforts of Courtney's House to help survivors of domestic sex trafficking. Courtney's House is also collecting unwrapped presents for survivors. If you would like to donate anything, please bring it to the meeting (all gifts must be received by December 7th). Some requested items are listed below.

We will also discuss future meetup plans and the member survey we just completed.  Since we will be meeting at Jason's Deli and I love their cookies, there will have a dessert tray for you enjoy.  As a reminder, please email Marci at [masked] if you are interested in a leadership position.

Mission Statement
Courtney's House is committed to providing a loving environment for girls and boys between the ages of 12 and 18 who are survivors of sex trafficking. They are dedicated to addressing the overlooked issues of domestic sex trafficking by providing essential services to survivors.

Vision
Every survivor of sex trafficking can receive survivor focused, trauma informed, and holistic services. By providing them with staff survivors and giving them their own voices, this enables them to pass on their own keys to success.


About Courtney’s House
The Courtney's House initiative was started in August 2008. The organization was founded by Tina Frundt, herself a survivor of domestic child sex trafficking. They currently provide services through their D.C. location, and serve the D.C., Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland area. Their services include intensive case management, educational assistance, survivor led CSEC support groups, trauma recovery counseling, and group therapy (art, dance, yoga). Courtney's House hopes to also open a group home in the near future. Currently there are fewer than a hundred beds nationwide for survivors of sex trafficking.

In addition to their direct services, Courtney's House conducts a street outreach program, where they reach out to victims currently being trafficked in Washington D.C. Please see their volunteer opportunities page to sign up to be a street outreach volunteer. They operate a hotline by survivors, for survivors; the hotline number is for victims or to make a referral: [masked]
