Let Go...Let Peace Come In Foundation: Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) Working Together To Heal, Recover, and Enact Change and Understanding to Confront the Effects of CSA Throughout An Adult's Life
Our much needed foundation fills a void. We have had visitors from every state of the US, thousands of cities, 156 countries and our site has been read in 42 languages !
Help us spread the word to all survivors. We will convey to the public at large that: WE AS SURVIVORS DID NOTHING WRONG. We were just kids! All shame and blame goes to the perpetrator. None of it goes to us!
Your generous donation will help the LGLPCI Foundation support its mission to bring a higher quality of care to adult survivors, increase prevention efforts, and fund the research necessary to facilitate real change in our society.
Our foundation is dedicated to stopping, finally, the current and widespread stigma of child sexual abuse held by the public at large toward this subject and to its victims, who have certainly been abused enough already! We will be launching a nationwide publicity campaign to quash this stigma and to then create a true understanding of this issue of pandemic proportions, and to the fact that all blame and shame does begin and end only with the perpetrator. The shame that victims of CSA feel, even though it should only be attributed to their perpetrators, is simply because they are children after all. For victims of CSA to become survivors, they must let go of the shame they took on, which can become a pivotal part of a survivor's recovery process. The stigma must be erased in order for the recovery process to become that of any other health problem understood by society." At the LGLPCI Foundation, we are ready to address this fundamental issue!
At LGLPCI we are also dedicated to creating a network of national support rooms for Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse, much like the incredibly important support groups such as: AA, NA, OA, SCA, etc. Trained therapists are needed as facilitators, in a network of national rooms set up for Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. At the LGLPCI Foundation, we intend to create this network with each room facilitated by a trauma trained therapist. As a result, for the first time, survivors nationwide will have a local place to go to recover with the help of others and a skilled therapist to ensure their safety in the process!
Foundation founder Peter S. Pelullo has published a book about his own journey through CSA, the addiction and the recovery. Great reviews. Available here
.......Sexually abused children face unprecedented challenges as they grow into adulthood. This foundation was created to discuss and communicate those challenges and life altering effects with adult survivors from ages 18 to 100!
Research shows that regardless of whether survivors hold vivid, vague, or repressed memories of their childhood sexual abuse, the first step survivors must take is to understand the need for support and help to be able to LET GO... of the memories of the trauma, the shame, the fear, the isolation, and the one or multiple addictions they've developed over the years. Once adult survivors can start to see and correlate how the sexual abuse caused their life of dysfunction and disassociation it is the foundation's hope that they will start to live again and LET PEACE COME IN to their hearts and lives!
"We must start now to face this problem with courage, with resolve, and most importantly with honesty, especially in recognizing that damage has been done in our childhood and that it was not our fault. We must then talk about it. We must talk with someone who understands, someone we can trust, someone who will validate our story. It will put us on the path to recovery, a path that will lead to a joyful and healthy life. The more forgotten victims - the family members who lived with the actual victim- as well as victims, we can reach, the better our chance for a healthier world, not only physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We are all in this together." -Marjorie McKinnon
