Healing Our Past Experiences
HOPE began as one woman reached out for help, and she was asked to help others in return. She just wanted to know she wasn't alone and after starting the healing process she realized that with the staggering statistics, she has never been alone as a survivor of sexual trauma.
*According to Crimes against Children Research
90% of children who are victims of sexual abuse know their abuser.
60% of children who are abused are abused by people the family trusts.
40% of children who are sexually abused are abused by older, or more powerful children.
30% of children who are sexually abused are abused by family members.
10% or less of children who are sexually abused are abused by a stranger.
HOPE strives for a world free from sexual trauma and its effects.
