The Covering House

The Covering House

The Covering House will utilize a combination of prevention, holistic care, & emergency care to combat the human sex trafficking industry and provide refuge and restoration to girls under the age of 18 who have experienced sexual trafficking or sexual exploitation in St. Louis.

Locally, sex trafficking in the St. Louis area has been reported in numerous articles, highlighting how the St. Louis and Metro East regions are uniquely susceptible to sex trafficking. The Covering House has built relationships with organizations that rescue and/or receive sexually exploited girls into their immediate care. These organizations then place those girls in our safe home for long-term care. The Covering House provides a secure shelter and all-inclusive care for girls who are survivors of sexual exploitation and trafficking. This includes food, shelter, clothing, toiletries, healthcare, counseling, mentoring, education, vocational training, and recreational activities.
