1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. 90% of children who are sexually abused, know their abuser. When I was 11 I was molested by my paternal grandfather. I never mentioned it until it accidentally came out when I was 37 years old. My grandfather had already passed away at that time. There is no worse feeling than someone you trust and love betraying you like that!
I also dealt with years of financial,emotional,verbal,and 1 relationship with physical abuse. I learned alot, but you know what?I'm a SURVIVOR OF BOTH
I did not know about the services this agency offered, especially the free couseling to people who have been victims of domestic violence/sexual abuse. Had I had some counseling, things could have turned out differently. That's why I'm trying my best to get items and pamphlets out into the community to raise awareness about our agency and what we do.
Monies raised from this fundraiser will help with shelter needs not met by grants, a new program to help the resident start over.
