The Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition is excited to announce Solace House - the first safe house in Idaho for victims of human trafficking. Solace House will provide a therapeutic setting for victims to receive emergency shelter and residential care, as well as medical and rehabilitation services.
The mission of the Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition, Inc. is to work alongside community members in providing awareness, education, services, and safe housing for victims of human trafficking.
Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition, Inc. - Solace House exists to provide a home for girls 11 to 18 years of age who are victims of sex trafficking. Solace House will serve children in Idaho, but will collaborate with other states throughout the United States as a possible placement.
We are working in collaboration with a variety of organizations, nonprofits, churches, local and state agencies, and hospitals, such as Saint Alphonsus Health Services, Faces of Hope Victim Center, Local Law Enforcement, Juvenile Corrections, Legislators, and many more.
Solace House will be located in the Boise area in an undisclosed location.
A child/youth might be a victim of sex trafficking within the family structure or through force, abduction, fraud or coercion. Children/youth need a sense of belonging and ongoing reassurances of value and worth. Therefore, Solace House is a residential care facility that provides trauma informed care, group and individual therapy, supports, life skills, and opportunities for physical activities and peer interaction for the purpose of restoration and rehabilitation.
Children/youth can stay at the Solace House for up to two years and when ready, a case manager will work on transitional services for a permanent placement.
Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition meets the second Tuesday of every month at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center on Curtis Rd. We welcome anyone who would like to learn more or get involved. We offer ongoing Trafficking 101 trainings, as well as host educational and awareness events throughout the state.
