Kristi House: The Children’s Advocacy Center serving Miami-Dade County

Kristi House provides vital services to victims of sexual abuse and other childhood trauma through advocacy, therapy, and prevention education.

1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. 

In seconds, their childhoods are shattered, their innocence stolen forever. If left untreated, the effects haunt them for years, increasing the likelihood of drug and alcohol dependency, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, delinquency, violent crime and debilitating fear. While there are approximately 40 million survivors of sexual abuse in America today, sexual abuse is a crime that goes largely undetected.

Operating the nationally accredited Children’s Advocacy Center responsible for all of Miami-Dade County, Kristi House is the only facility dedicated to a mission of system coordination to ensure that all emotional, physical and legal needs for child sexual abuse and teen sexual assault victims are provided. Every week partner-agencies — including medical staff, guardians, social service investigators, police, prosecutors, therapists and case workers — meet to discuss individual cases to make certain that no child falls through the gaps in our complex systems of care and justice. All services are provided at no charge to victims and families.

In addition to coordinating the Center's Multidisciplinary Team, we provide the specialists to help the child and family heal. Our direct services staff includes engagement specialists, Family Advocates, and master level and licensed Therapists trained in the most effective interventions for recovery.

Kristi House’s work involves 3 major pillars: advocacy, therapy for victims, and prevention education to turn the tide on sexual abuse.

3 Pillars:

  1. ADVOCACY - Working closely with our multidisciplinary partners, schools, public officials and other service providers enables a seamless process for children and families overcoming crises and trauma.
  2. THERAPY - Evidence-based interventions, proven effective for child trauma, provide vital support for victims to ensure long-term recovery.
  3. PREVENTION EDUCATION - We are equally devoted to educating children, parents, school districts, and communities on how to keep kids safe.
