In 2022 there were 67,558 child victims served by Child Advocacy Centers across the state of Texas. Garth House served nearly 1,000 of those children. Through the efforts of our multidisciplinary team, we are dedicated to shining a healing light on the dark world of child abuse & child s*x trafficking. In addition to providing forensic interviews, family advocacy and counseling services, Garth House also provides Care Coordination services for survivors of child s*x trafficking. We serve six counties in Southeast Texas: Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Newton, Orange and Tyler. Garth House continually strives to focus on healing and hope for the innocent victims of child abuse. It is a monumental task, and we need your help.
THEY need your help!

The Garth House team made a trip to the theatre today for staff development to see 'Sound of Freedom'. One of our Forensic Interviewers had the following to say about the movie, and we thought everyone should read it:

"Make plans to watch Sound of Freedom asap!
If you haven’t already seen the trailer, watch it. It is based on a true story regarding an agent and his personal battle against child s*x trafficking. This film, although painful to watch, is necessary to have a little insight into the reality we’re living in. It shows a dark corner of the world that deserves a lot more attention. Important messages I obtained from watching:

1. First and foremost, “God’s children are not for sale.” You can sell a bag of co***ne, w**d, or any drug only one time but you can sell a child multiple times throughout the day. An estimated of 2 million children are sold into s*x trafficking every year. It is heartbreaking and hard to hear but first step into helping children is hearing their story.

2. Awareness is important. People don’t want to talk about the realities of what is happening in our world, in our communities, right in front of our faces because it is “too ugly for polite conversation.” We flood our feeds with issues regarding celebrities, sports, …submarines. But child s*x trafficking? It is rarely openly talked about. Educate yourselves!

3. Every child is worth it. Many people think child s*x trafficking is an issue too massive to be fixed, possibly not being able to make a difference. Making a difference in one child’s life IS making a difference.
I have the opportunity to work in a field with people that make a difference every day and I’m truly grateful to be able to watch it first hand. I appreciate y’all and pray for your serving hearts every day."
