The PEHT Residential Home is committed to providing an environment free from exploitation for survivors of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. We provide a safe, secure home, at an undisclosed location in Bridgeport, CT, serving females from any area. Our holistic, comprehensive services are tailored to each survivor’s needs and we encourage and support survivors to choose new paths and create new stories. Our program aims to help survivors achieve self-sufficiency after exploitation. The length of stay is an anticipated 1-2 years in an environment dedicated to encouraging dignity and respect. The PEHT Home encourages women to pursue education (GED, if applicable); vocational training through our social justice enterprise; trauma-and trafficking-informed treatment and activities for behavioral health; and daily living skill acquisition such as budgeting, basic cooking and housekeeping, and use of public transportation. Our focus for helping survivors thriving after adversity is executed through the Sanctuary Model ® for trauma informed care SELF (Safety, Emotions, Loss and Future) and spiritual freedom groups; opportunities to build the healthy, trusting relationships needed to build lives of self-sufficiency, success and happiness; and building support systems to pave way to self-sufficiency.
