-Kristi House began leading the Miami community response to commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in 2007 with a program encompassing collaboration, prevention and treatment. Project GOLD has brought the legal and provider community together around the issue of child sex trafficking, while providing health, social and legal services linkages, and mental health support to sexually exploited girls, ages 11-17. Project GOLD also focuses on raising awareness about the reality of children being bought and sold in the commercial sex industry and building community capacity to treat and heal victims. Kristi House specialists have trained thousands of professionals throughout the U.S. on CSEC.
More than 200 children in the past five years have received services on an outpatient basis through Project GOLD. Project GOLD uses a strengths-based, survivor-advised approach to help girls see a better future for themselves and restore their lives. Kristi House hopes to continue to build its partnerships with other residential providers, and eventually provide an emergency shelter for girls escaping prostitution and pornography in partnership with the child welfare system.
The program seeks to:
Empower and raise awareness among at-risk girls; Identify and assist those who are in need of services to escape exploitation; Strengthen the community capacity to address the issue of CSEC; Change systems that allow CSEC to continue (Kristi House authored and advocated for the passage of Florida’s Safe Harbor Act that provides services and treatment instead of punishment for children who are victims of sex trafficking.)
