Back to School Drive

Each year, Kristi House provides therapy and other services to over 2,000 children and their families affected by childhood sexual abuse, human trafficking and other trauma. Many of our families face other hardships, and Kristi House aims to alleviate as many stressors as possible so families can focus on healing.

Please help us get our children ready for academic success by donating school supplies and backpacks, and helping us provide an awesome Back-to-School event so that each child can start the school year equipped for success!
