USIAHT’s Florida Safe Home is one of the first safe homes for boys in the United States dedicated to the care of male victims of sex trafficking under the age of 18. The home offers a trauma-based care approach, developed as a six to nine month program, but allowing the children to stay as long as necessary for their proper care.
Located in an undisclosed location in Central Florida, the Florida Safe Home is designed to serve any biologically born male under 18, no matter where they identify on the gender spectrum. This is important due to projections that up to 50% of trafficked biologically born males in Florida are transgender. Each child has their own bedroom and bathroom in the home, enabling this unique program focus.
