Courage House Northern California is not just a structure or building, a program or approach; it is a place where hope is given, healing is offered, and lives are restored. We believe it is never too late for an individual—especially a child—to be rescued and lovingly restored to a life filled with hope, purpose, and love.
Courage House Northern California opened on August 1, 2011. It is a state-licensed, long-term residential level 12 group home for six girls, ages 11–17, with plans to build ten cottages on the 50-acre property to accommodate sixty girls in the future. Courage House Northern California is located in an undisclosed, rural location.
Our Courage House facility and program is intentionally designed to provide a long-term home as opposed to an opportunity to graduate from a program. Statistics show the majority of the young women who are victims of sex trafficking do not have safe homes and loving families to return to once they have “graduated from the program.” Trauma specialists report that the time frame of just beginning to recover from this type of complex trauma takes a minimum of 4 to 5 years.
