Support Group for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse in the Treasure Coast Area
Please see below from the SNAP Network (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests)
We have some exciting news for survivors living in the Treasure Coast area of South Florida. Starting in 2 weeks we will be holding a monthly support group for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The treasure coast is made up of Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian Counties. This includes cities from Sebastian and Vero in the north, through Fort Pierce, Port Saint Lucie, Jensen Beach, Stuart, to Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Riviera in the south.
Here in the USA, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18.
Tragically over 90% of those abused had this happen at the hands of someone they knew, trusted or loved. Seldom, if ever, do they report this most heinous of crimes against a child.
If this has happened to you or to someone you know, please understand and pass along this simple message……you are not alone. They are not alone. Help is available right here in your neighborhood.
Please contact “Together We Heal”, “Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast” or “SNAP-Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests” and we will provide the time, date and location.
Working together, survivors of this crime can have a life of dignity and hope. Together, we can truly heal and provide shelter for one another.
