The Avanti House:
Avanti House Safe Home offers trauma-informed services. This means everything we do is based on the latest research surrounding the psychobiological effects of serious, recurrent, and chronic stress. Our programs are built on best practices for intervention in order to best help our girls in their recovery.
Extended Hands of Hope safe house program at Avanti House provides restorative services that are built on the foundation of the agency’s Vision, Mission, and Core Values. The program is also guided by certain philosophies of treatment: trauma-informed, moral-based, and strengths-based treatment. The services and interventions derived from these values and philosophies are intended to decrease the impact of trauma on survivors of sex trafficking. A child who has endured such complex trauma often has difficulty managing emotions and displays behaviors, including but not limited to, symptoms of PTSD, depression, aggression and/or running away. In order to best meet the needs of this population Extended Hands of Hope-Avanti House provides services through a three phase-multimodal-model.
