How We Can Help

It is every family’s worst nightmare to learn that a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse by someone they trust. Worse still, many cases are kept hidden in the shadows out of shame and regret at the victim’s discretion, so many families don’t learn of the incident at hand until much later on if at all. In most cases, there is a personal relationship between the abuser and the victim, and often, the abuse is focused between members of the same family or social circles. This makes it more difficult not only for family members to face and accept but also for the victim to come forward and reveal.

Stepping Out of the Darkness

Historic sexual abuse can often serve as a form of tragedy, fragmenting households and straining relationships, tainting family interactions with whispers of the past and bias of the victim, the accused, and anyone who may have been in the know and kept it all a secret for so long. Childhood sexual abuse that happened even decades ago can still haunt a family and the victim themselves, with lingering effects such as PTSD, anxiety, phobias and social isolation serving as common ill-effects of the event. It is hard to forget and even harder to let go, and many victims have trouble for the rest of their lives when it comes to finding ways to cope.
