Corbett Group Homes, Inc. is opening a new group home that is solely dedicated to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) May 1, 2014 in San Mateo County. Corbett Group Homes, Inc. is extremely excited about this new venture as services for CSEC is extremely limited in not only California, but the United States. Corbett Group Homes, Inc. will be utilizing the Victim, Survivor, Leader Model developed and created by GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services, NYC). Corbett Group Homes, Inc. CSEC Program is named the R.I.S.E House, and the modality of empowering youth to evolve from victims to survivors and into leaders. We will also work in partnership with other residential programs that are located in Atlanta, GA (Wellspring) and The Gateways Program (The Jewish Child Care Association) in Pleasantville, NY to utilize their expertise and knowledge working successfully with this target specific population.

There are few residential programs in the United States that accept youth from the foster care system and/or juvenile justice system that have been identified as CSEC, so Corbett Group Homes, Inc. and The R.I.S.E. Program aim to be part of the effort that to change the paradigm on working with CSEC youth and empowering our youth from within to break away from sexual exploitation.

The R.I.S.E. House will be a California Department of Social Services, RCL 12, and Licensed Group Home Facility. The youth accepted into the R.I.S.E. house will be from the foster care system and/or from the juvenile justice system. We will also be working tightly with our local community partners who have committed to the fight to end CSEC.
