Community Based Services
The Covering House provides services for girls who are not in need of care in a long-term home. These services include counseling, group therapy, case management, life skills classes, summer day camps, mentoring and tutoring, as well as support for caregivers through our Supportive Adults Program.
Individual Counseling will be offered by clinically licensed counselors utilizing our Holistic Approach which incorporates Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Relational Cultural Theory, and Seeking Safety. Each client in The Covering House program will receive an individualized treatment plan developed by her counselor and treatment team.
If needed, The Covering House is able to provide tutoring for our girls receiving out-client services. In the past, with the help of our volunteers, this has been a very successful component of the girls experience at The Covering House.
Our program, written by a social worker who is also a survivor of sex trafficking, is divided into two phases. The first phase explores the meaning of safety and self-care as well as feelings and fear identification. The second phase focuses on developing self-awareness and efficacy as well as establishing appropriate boundaries and connection within relationships.
Experiential classes help our girls find and create meaning from everyday activities. This can include anything from nutrition education and culinary skills to gardening. Additional experiential classes may include financial stability, wellness, rights and responsibilities as an adult, photography, drama, Bible study and others.
