Clover House

A restorative residential program for adolescent girls who have experienced the trauma of child sex trafficking.

About Clover House

Child trafficking preys disproportionately on our most vulnerable youth and it happens everywhere.

Saint Francis Community Services believes it is imperative that we focus on the specific needs of child survivors of human trafficking. As experts in child welfare and providers of diverse services to children and youth for more than 70 years, Saint Francis is uniquely positioned to address the needs of these children. Saint Francis staff members are able to identify and respond to child trafficking on the front lines, caring for children every day who are highly vulnerable to the risks of trafficking across Kansas and the United States.

In 2016, Saint Francis Community Services opened Clover House, a new, restorative residential program for adolescent girls who have experienced the unique and complex trauma of child sex trafficking. Our focus is on the whole person, giving each the time and space to discover a future of possibility on a path toward physical, psychological, and spiritual wellness, strengthened by community and by grace. A homelike environment fosters growth and healing at Clover House, bringing together girls who have a shared experience, mentors who provide care, acceptance and gentle guidance, and a program that is responsive to the needs and experience of the individual.
