Consequently, Kristi had a challenging life. She eventually found her way back to South Florida and to Kristi House some 20 years later, where Kristi House and an exceptional caring therapist, have provided healing, albeit delayed, services.
More often than not, there is no physical evidence of sexual abuse, meaning the trauma children endure is overlooked by family members. Many people do not know how to respond and often unwittingly try to ignore, deny, avoid and forget. Kristi House provides a place for children to get the help they need, and was named in honor of Kristi, the nine-year-old girl.
Thank you, Kristi, for breaking the silence.
