Since opening its doors in 1998, The Gingerbread House has served 13,040 child abuse victims through Forensic Interviews, Multidisciplinary Team Investigations, and Family Advocacy.
Through therapy, the healing process can begin and further victimization can be prevented. Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy and other interventions are offered for child victims and their non-offending caregivers at the Gingerbread House by Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Master Social Workers at no cost to the victim's family.
The Gingerbread House believes Knowledge is Power and it is critical to provide prevention education to children and adults in our community. By educating children and adults in our community we can empower and encourage them to speak up if they see abuse or if any type of abuse has happened to them.
Through the Louisiana Child & Youth Trafficking Collaborative and in collaboration with the Louisiana Alliance of Children's Advocacy Centers, the Gingerbread House houses the Regional Child & Youth Trafficking Coordinator for the Shreveport Region. The Human Trafficking program provides intensive case management for at-risk and confirmed victims of child sex trafficking with the statewide goal of improving outcomes for child and youth victims of trafficking.
