The mission of Tabitha’s House, Inc. is to provide services to residents via housing, counseling, and intervention. This program was designed to assist individuals with daily living skills by providing programs that enhance their quality of life and prepare them for independence and reintegration into society to function as a productive citizen despite emotional disturbances, physical abuse, mental manipulation, and sexual exploitation. The program attempts to terminate repetitive, negative thought patterns and behaviors, generate an awareness of more positive options, and maintain a new and improved way of life.
In addition to providing residential services, Tabitha’s House aims to break the vicious cycle through awareness, prevention, identification, intervention, and education.
We aim to bring fresh AIR (awareness, impact, and resources) to communities through escape, rehabilitation, and transformation of individuals, families, and communities.
The renovations for Tabitha’s House residential facility is under way and we need your help to complete the project. The main home for girls coming out of CSEC are few and many victims are retained in foster homes due to this shortage. Our home for girls is located in the Atlanta metro area. This facility provides career readiness training, educational support, mental health services, independent living skills, life skills, and other critical abilities needed to sustain healthy lifestyles. We help our residents build a positive self-image by encouraging personal and professional development.
It is important to equip others about the dangers of human trafficking. Gaining awareness through training, advocacy, and community forums prepares parents, schools, neighbors, business owners, trained professionals, law enforcement, and policy makers to recognize signs and symptoms associated with exploitation. By increasing awareness, children, adolescents, and adults are equipped to recognize the warning signs associated with human trafficking. When communities and policy makers are informed, people are educated and join the fight to combat modern-day slavery. This is the first step to prevention. Learn more here !
As stated above, trafficking affects about 300+ girls a month, but it goes further. Statistics can not accurately reflect the number of boys, adult women, and those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, or queer (LGBTQ) who are impacted by sex trafficking. The numbers are often estimated or underreported due to the illegal nature of this crime. Areas affected by trafficking are often be high crime, high poverty areas. Gangs may be present. Alleviating this issue impacts the entire community in a positive way. As we help drive out crime in these areas, there is a possibility for economic renewal. But, more importantly, for those vulnerable to being trafficked and sold into this industry, it restores them to productive members of society.
Tabitha’s House aims to provide aftercare services that equip and support those impacted by sex trafficking. We attempt to restore lives, homes, and communities.
