Our guest speaker was Kristen Harness, the Executive Director of Extended Hands of Hope. Extended Hands of Hope is a 501(C)(3) organization working on opening up an emergency shelter for underage girls recovered from sex trafficking in Denver and the surrounding areas. Extended Hands of Hope was formed after hearing about the great need for an emergency shelter specific to this young victim population. Avanti House will be a short-term home for girls ages 15-17 and will meet the immediate needs of the children. Services for the girls will include basic medical and dental care, trauma-informed counseling, group therapy, recreational activities, Bible and book studies, and referrals to appropriate long-term treatment.
