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.
The Covering House provides refuge and restoration, using the least restrictive environment, for sexually exploited and trafficked children and teens, providing safety, dignity, and freedom utilizing top level staffing and oversight.
