“During my period of homelessness, I was given a great place of comfort, privacy and safety at the Crescent House. The staff really understood my fear, uncertainty and difficulty.

The constant support in the form of groups and once-a-week dinners have built a bond for life.”

Youth + Teen Programs


Camp Hope america, louisiana

Camp HOPE America is the first camping and mentoring initiative in the United States to focus on children and teens exposed to domestic violence. At Camp HOPE, we have the opportunity to use fun-filled avenues to give campers a hope for a brighter future. While it is mostly fun and games (which we love!), we also use an evidence and values-based curriculum that teaches campers to believe in themselves, in others, and in their dreams.

Prevention Education in Schools

We partner with local elementary, middle and high schools to provide the Safe Dates and Care-ageous Kids curriculum to students. These evidence-based, interactive curriculum help prevent sexual assault and dating violence through teaching about healthy relationships, communication, consent, bystander intervention and more. Interested in bringing this training to your classroom or school? Visit our training page.

TEEN + young adult Workshops

We provide a range of training and workshops with youth in schools and on college campuses on topics including sexual assault, dating violence, consent, healthy relationships, bystander intervention and more.


Playland provides children with a safe environment to play, while a parent or caregiver receives support services on-site at our office.
