“…I am the very proud mother of a Courage House young lady! She is a change maker! She has a future! And she is loved by so many who know what love is. Thank God for Courage House – they saved my daughter’s life”
—Michele, a mom of a girl who called Courage House home.
“We have discovered the adolescents who have been trafficked for sex show the most significant response to treatment at 18-24 months for mental health symptoms. These preliminary results point to long-term care for adolescents of commercial sexual exploitation as the best practice for treatment. Based upon research, it is my professional opinion that residential care be designed as a two-three year program for adolescent girls rescued from commercial exploitation.
Through our evaluation, Courage Worldwide has established a long-term residential care home for exploited adolescents that meets and exceeds the standards for best practice.
Courage Worldwide has established a long-term therapeutic residential care home for sexually exploited adolescents that meets and even exceeds our standards for best practices in the industry. Their outcomes are extraordinary with this population and are now documented as a part of a five-year longitudinal study measuring the effects of the Courage House program.”

After working with Courage Worldwide for the past four years, I can truthfully say they are one of the most well designed therapeutic environments I have worked with in the area of human trafficking. Their extended family approach and focus on personal responsibility, while in a supportive therapeutic environment is cutting-edge in the industry. They have no peers in the industry.”
