Benefitting Nicole’s Projects:

Providing restoration for child survivors of sex trafficking. 


Nicole's House Projects

A Safe Harbor for Human Trafficking Survivors

Nicole’s House provides temporary care in a healing, therapeutic environment for female survivors of human trafficking. Nicole's House works with each girl to assess her specific experiences and circumstances to determine the best pathway toward healing and recovery.

A team of professionals provides comprehensive, evidence-based services to evaluate each survivor and determine the best path of treatment, based on individual needs.


Join us, join Larry Gatlin, and Support Nicole's House Projects.






By the Numbers


  • It is estimated that there are approximately 234,000 victims of labor trafficking in the State of Texas.
  • There are approximately 79,000 youth and minor sex trafficking victims in Texas at any one time.
  • The five most common types of trafficking are Escort Services, Outdoor Solicitation, Illicit Massage, Residential Sex Trafficking, and Domestic Work. It is no surprise that these are also the most common types of trafficking that involve children.

Not only does Nicole's House provide essential services to Texas children, but it brings awareness to the surrounding community about the realities of human trafficking. The survivors we serve are vulnerable and need our help, but they need your help too. This center is a great opportunity for the local community to lend a helping hand to children in need.


Nicole's House Programs


  • Drop-in Center: Our Drop-in Center, an emergency short-term program, is available to law enforcement, child welfare professionals and other stakeholders to drop off survivors for assessment and services. Nicole's House Drop-In Center has approximately five beds available for use.
  • Long-Term Treatment Center: Our Long-Term Treatment Center has 20 beds available for children to stay up to 90 days. In this program, survivors receive evidence-based, best practice therapeutic services to overcome their trauma, allowing them to thrive and become successful, healthy individuals.

$2,500 Furniture & personal items

Besides creating a safe, happy, welcoming environment, furnishings at Nicole’s House will be scrutinized for safety, minimizing the chance of injury or self-harm. Comfortable surroundings will help a sleep deprived child stabilize, enhancing their recovery.  Access to personal items like clothing, shoes, toiletries and haircuts are essential to restoring dignity.

$1,000 Personalized social outings

Living under the control of an abuser creates a web of distrust that must be unwound.  Social settings may be difficult and trigger traumatic memories for these children.  Helping the children reassimilate into society safely is a step-by-step process requiring resources.  Birthday celebrations, holiday parties, restaurant experiences, trips to amusement parks and even doctor or dental visits without the presence of an abuser provide essential lessons for a survivor.

$500 Emergency Funds

Accidents happen. Help provide resources for the unexpected to cover minor emergencies and services such dental work or eye exams.

$250 Welcome Package

The smallest gestures can make the biggest impact, particularly in the life of a traumatized child.  Girls often arrive to treatment with nothing but the clothes on their back. Often afraid, embarrassed and defensive, they may avoid mixing with other children. Special welcome packages, containing basic essentials and a few small treasures are the first stage to a fresh start.  Participating in recovery requires confidence.  Feeling cared for, clean and presentable on the outside is a primary step toward restoring essential dignity.
