Kristi House’s Project GOLD provides outreach and services to children exploited in sex trafficking to help them escape dangerous lives at the hands of traffickers and predators.
The principal goals of the project are to identify evidence-based intervention(s) that effectively engage and treat the mental health needs of CSEC youth, deliver high-quality treatment services to CSEC-identified clients utilizing these evidence-based practices, and train therapists in Georgia in these practices to create a network of providers to serve CSEC clients.
Support to End Exploitation Now Coalition (SEEN Coalition) is a groundbreaking program that partners more than 35 public and private agencies who believe that only genuine collaboration can yield positive outcomes for child victims of commercial sexual exploitation (CSEC).
Created in 2006, the Runaway Intervention Program (RIP) is a joint effort among Ramsey County Attorney’s Office, Midwest Children’s Resource Center (MCRC), Ramsey County Community Human Services, and other community partners to identify and address the needs of young runaway girls. The Midwest Children’s Resource Center’s success with RIP demonstrates that providing health education, immediate access to reproductive health care, and access to group counseling can prevent harmful exacerbated health consequences. Through a combination of home and community visits by a nurse practitioner and counseling, the program aims to reduce trauma and improve health coping behaviors in at-risk teens.
