Few in our community want to acknowledge sexual abuse as a problem. Hearts of Hope provides education, awareness and counseling to all who have been affected by sexual abuse trauma. Children and adults alike are treated with respect and dignity while receiving counseling services. Hearts of Hope CARES!

Hearts of Hope is one of three Centers in the state of Louisiana that houses three programs under one roof: Children's Advocacy Center, Sexual Abuse Response Center and Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. The services provided by Hearts of Hope allows not only the victim to receive counseling and medical care, but also the entire family can receive counseling so as the entire unit can heal from a crisis-related trauma be it sexual assault, severe physical abuse and/or witness to a violent crime. Additionally, these services are FREE to EVERYONE...no insurance needed! The staff at Hearts of Hope are extremely compassionate providing education, advocacy and empowerment to all involved. Hearts of Hope is a great and much-needed service in the Acadiana area serving the parishes of Lafayette, Acadia, Iberia, Vermilion, St. Martin, St. Mary, Evangeline, St. Landry and at times, other parishes as far as Point Coupee, Jeff Davis, Calcasieu and even counties.

Hearts of Hope houses three agencies that focus on serving people in our community that have experienced sexual violence. The services are free! There is a great need for this agency and they have been around for over 50 years combined, Children's Advocacy Center, Sexual Abuse Response Center and Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners.

This organization works extremely hard to provide free services to survivors of sexual violence. There are three programs there that put their blood, sweat and tears into the incredible work that they do.

Valuable asset to the community and a worthy cause that needs others to get involved .

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

running the program and finding funding sources

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes, just enhancements, as funding allows. The needs are funds for operational expenses, capital campaign for renovation of new building and updated equipment for facility.
