A child that has been victimized by childhood sexual abuse will unfortunately start to live a life of confusion, fear, isolation, humiliation, shame, and for the most part a life filled with one or multiple addictions.
It has been documented that until a survivor addresses the psychological, chemical, and or spiritual damage caused by their sexual abuse it is very likely that they will continue to live an emotionally and physically distraught life plagued by dysfunction and disconnection. Much worse than this is the fact that the vast majority of those effected haven't correlated that this life of havoc was caused by their childhood sexual abuse. Many survivors in therapy are addressing the symptoms of their sexual abuse (depression, anxiety, addiction, etc.) but never addressing the core issue, which was their violation experienced as a child.
The opportunity to receive the therapy and recovery needed is non-existent. Even if a person has healthcare coverage it will not cover the capital needed for the “survivor” to start their long journey to recovery. It is for this reason that the foundation is taking the “unprecedented” action of assisting in this process “one survivor” at a time. It is imperative that we heal the survivors from the top down. Great Grandparents, Grandparents, Parents, Uncles, Aunts, Young Adults; as these generations heal and gain the understanding of their violation, it will enable them to become healthier; therefore, present and future generations will not only be emotionally healthier but have an understanding of what happened to their Grandparents or Parents and loved ones.
To start the survivor on the road to recovery the foundation will secure and pay for therapy sessions to a trauma informed therapist in their area. Once being awakened to how the sexual abuse governed and dictated their way of life; these sessions will give the survivor the beginnings to start the connections process that they so desperately need. As we help heal and start the journey for one survivor at a time, we hope to change the healthcare systems so that they will follow this procedure and stipulate a "one" time payment to survivors as well.
