Adult Services works with women and men who have survived child sexual abuse and or sexual assault. The program strives to assist adults in making the transition from victim to survivor, decreasing their sense of social isolation, increasing their sense of self-worth and value, increasing their sense of hope, and increasing their survival skills.
Often, though not always, these women and men are the mothers or fathers of the children we see in our Victims' Services Program. Helping adults whose children are in the Victims Services program not only helps the adult survivor -- a worthy goal in and of itself -- but also helps that person to be able to support their own child in recovering from trauma. It also decreases the risk that their child will be abused in the future.
Anyone in the community who is an adult survivor of sexual abuse or assault may participate in our program. Contact our office for more information.
*Services are available in Spanish as well as English.
