Welcome to a Place of Hope and Healing

I can think of no other violation that cuts through a person’s soul like rape.  This unspeakably violent crime touches the most intimate parts of a person’s being and tears it apart.  In the wake of such destruction, hope and happiness can seems lost forever.  Because the very nature of sexual assault is private and is almost always shrouded in secrecy and shame, the emotions that a victim experiences are often difficult to talk about.  This can leave the victim feeling even more isolated.    But talking about the crime is crucial, both in terms of healing and prevention.   I hope that the information and links provided on this website will help victims of rape to feel like they are not alone in their journey.   There is an active community of advocates, law enforcement personnel, government agencies and fellow survivors who can help you reclaim your life.
