Please help us build Ark of Hope's own nonprofit website for male and female victims of child abuse, young and old. Donate by October 1 and CrowdRise may DOUBLE your donation! Clink the link for more info; http://www.crowdrise.com/community/contests
Ark of Hope for Children sees first hand how even after any physical or sexual abuse is over, the emotional torment continues for child abuse survivors. Victims can often face post traumatic stress (PTSD), mental illness, depression, anxiety, nightmares, falling behind in school, confusion, bullying, separation from siblings, bounced from home to home... the list goes on and on. Even adult survivors of child abuse that have not received help will eventually hit an emotional barrier that can feel insurmountable.
The site will be available 24/7 worldwide once fully functioning. We built a site that we run for a for-profit company, but we must NOW pull this under our nonprofit umbrella.
The new site will be at RemovingChains.org and will feature 10+ rooms for group and private live chat help. Some restricted rooms will be only for teen aged and younger victims. We will have Survivors Coaches and mentors available to listen, be a shoulder, provide connections and materials and anything else possible.
Ark of Hope for Children under Blair Corbett, has been helping child abuse, child trafficking and even religious ritual abuse victims online for many years. Using our CounterAttack program through our growing social network survivors are finding new hope in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and other countries weekly.
Bringing these hurting souls together under one "roof" on our safe website will provide things we simply cannot anywhere else. PLEASE help us. Timing is critical to begin this effort now. Thousands of child abuse and trafficking victims need the hope that this site and Ark of Hope for children can bring.
The amount posted is not our full need, but the most critical and urgent portion at this time. Please link to and share this page; Crowdrise.com/AbuseSupport
We thank Harrison J. Bahe, Director of the short film "The Manipulated Living" for support Ark of Hope in it and allowing our use of it. We thank actors Keyghan Burns, RJ Serra, J. Lyle Johnson, Brad Blane and of course Harrison J. Bahe for making such a dynamic short film showing the current and future emotional affects of child abuse in such an impactful way.
