Review for Family Place Inc, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The family place is fantastic, most people think of them because of the great service they do for domestic violence, but they also have an excellent group of therapists dedicated to helping incest survivors. I was raped by my Dad and found so much comfort in joing a group of other women who had gone through the same thing. They taught us about boundaries, relationships, how to stand up for ourselves, say no and a million other things.

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

Being able to set boundaries, have confidence, not feel so alone, have a support system, a saftey plan, tell my secret.

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

Have more counselors and more groups. It took me a while to get into the group and they are often very crowded.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The support, feedback, honesty and help they provided when I felt sad, lonely and suicidal

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Counselors and interns

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hire more staff to help children who are growing up in !&%^$! and domestic abuse families, provide housing for women, provide more phone support, face to face counseling, more !&%^$! recovery groups, more education and awareness

Ways to make it better...

The group was smaller.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funding and a growing problem

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am grateful to everyone who helped me.
