Our Story

Our Story

During the fall of 2008, our founder, Deidre was exposed to a documentary on human sex-trafficking. This film discussed the issue both abroad and then locally to the United States. Deidre was pierced by the reality of trafficking happening in our country and was heartbroken that there were very few resources available for today’s young survivors. From there The Covering House was born.

Our Logo

The Covering House was named after the image of safety and refuge under the shelter of Cover. Our logo is inspired by The Underground Railroad log cabin quilt pattern, which served as a secret message of safety during those times. Quilts bearing the log cabin pattern were hung in windows to indicate a Safe Home for those seeking refuge. Although slavery was abolished nearly 150 years ago, it is still alive and thriving today, some say more than ever before. By taking a stand against the modern day slavery of the commercial sex industry and providing refuge for today’s young survivors, The Covering House is fighting for a world without slavery.
