MaleSurvivor: National Organization Against Male Sexual Victimization
September 18, 2012

At my first MaleSurvivor Weekend of Recovery, I walked into a room with 30 other people I had never met before, and for the first time in my life I didn't feel alone. I can't overstate how important the work MaleSurvivor does every day to help survivors and to create a community of healing. I was honored and humbled when the board asked me to take on the duties of Executive Director earlier this year. I think it says quite a bit about the powerful impact MaleSurvivor has on the lives of survivors that someone who was losing a life long battle with depression and suicidal thoughts just a few years ago could find the hope and support I needed to really do the hard work of healing. MaleSurvivor has helped hundred of thousands of male survivors and their loved ones through our website and other affiliated programs since 1995.

The Great!

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

attending 3 Weekends of Recovery (one with my wife on our honeymoon!), conducted trainings at our International Conferences, and seen and spoken to many other survivors who have been helped by MaleSurvivor.

Ways to make it better...

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

Raise more funds and tell the world about what MaleSurvivor offers to survivors and their loved ones.
