The Quilt Square Society is our monthly giving program designed to provide you the opportunity to support young survivors of human trafficking within the United States.
It’s all about the little things. Our day-to-day lives are filled with small details that provide us comfort. From an early morning cup of joe to a cup hot tea to wind the day down. All these small comforts provide us pleasure in life. Our girls often need these “sensory” items to help them regulate and cope with their past trauma and addictions.
“I believe in the mission of TCH and I am proud to partner with them on a continuing basis. The importance of committing to giving monthly allows TCH to continue providing a safe place where we can help restore the innocence stolen from these precious children” – Cathy
Kicking a ball, jumping rope, riding a bike, and visiting the zoo are the simple pleasures that so many of our youth missed during their childhoods. It is a goal of The Covering House to help our youth recapture some of their childhood and that is why every Friday is an outing day. We visit museums, the zoo, the Science Center and more. We go to the park where they fly kites, play on the swings, and have a picnic.
“It’s one step to say “that’s awful”, another to say “someone should do something about that” and another to say, “I’m going to do something about that”. The Covering House is doing something about an awful thing” – Martha
100% of The Covering House girls have a gap in their education. Gaps can occur because of being kept out of school, being singled out and bullied while in school, or like some of our girls, being trafficking while living at home and attending schools. Whatever the reason, our girls come to us with schools scars that create a barrier to learning and a fear to try. Education is a key component of our program.
“The leadership and staff of TCH are extremely caring, supportive, and dedicated to providing teens and children with empowered futures. My initial decision to give was fueled by my desire to support children and teens who are being exploited in the worst possible way” – Sara
Therapy is the cornerstone of our care for healing the hearts and souls of our girls. We provide traditional therapy such as individual, group, and family, but we also have specialized therapies such as equine, horticulture, and art therapy. The combination of all these therapies provides our kids with the tools to process their trauma and heal.
“I continue to give because TCH has created a unique group of volunteers and partners that provide happiness, in a dignified way, to so many. I am proud to give to be part of this amazing community” -Laura
Our motto is Safety, Dignity, Freedom. The Covering House was founded with the idea that all children deserve respect. Over the course of our short life as an organization, we have worked with over 70 kids at our long-term therapeutic home and across the community to provide them safety, dignity, and freedom.
‘Safety’ – My mind seeks safety because safety wasn’t always an option.
‘Dignity’ – I carry my dignity like a badge of honor.
‘Freedom’ – Caging a sparrow to admire its beauty destroys its chance at having
