Review for Hope of Survivors, Bedford, IA, USA
I was a victim of clergy sexual abuse about six years ago. For many years I blamed myself for everything that occurred. I ran across The Hope of Survivors through a counselor's recommendation. THOS has been an excellent source of information and comfort to me. Not only did THOS help me understand that the abuse was not my fault, but they have helped me heal from this situation through the love and support that everyone has shown. I have found that the people are extremely supportive and always willing to help me during my struggles. The website provides lots of great information about clergy sexual abuse and I have referred nearly my entire family to the website to help them understand what I have been through because my words would not be adequate enough for them. It is sad that THOS needs to exist, but there is such a need for them. I can only hope that they will continue to provide support and comfort to the hundreds of victims that are sure to come their way in the coming years.
