The Place We Call Home



TribeAZ is a start-up not for profit social services agency founded by Kristin Howard and Jessica Softley who felt compelled to do something to help kids who have experienced sex/human trafficking and desperately needed a safe and loving home.

The purpose of TribeAZ is to provide early trauma intervention through a judgement free, safe place for minors to learn to love themselves, to discover their passion, learn responsibility, and receive the help that they mentally, emotionally, and physically deserve.


We believe long term change will only come through building awareness and education regarding the sex trafficking industry. TribeAZ strives to raise awareness about public and social forums and speaking engagements.   This home provides a residence aimed at personal growth toward responsible behavior and returning home or emancipation. The components of the program are:

  • Participation in group activities
  • Incentives for positive behavior in house and school
  • Tutorial help in academic areas
  • Independent living skills
  • Gardening
  • Horse Therapy
  • Local individual and family counseling and follow-up

Get Involved

Human trafficking is a version of slavery and a national epidemic, someone must provide the security, resources and guidance the victims deserve and deliver knowledge and awareness to the community. We feel compelled to help children and provide early trauma intervention. We have personally overcome adversity, abuse, and setbacks. As mothers, we are personally motivated and passionate about social change for future generations. Now it is time to translate our knowledge and experience into something meaningful.
