Review for Hope of Survivors, Sonoma, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Hope of Survivors gave me the definition for what happened to me. I had no idea what I had been through. The session of my church labeled it adultery, while at the same time using the terms “he was grooming you” and “that is textbook sexual abuse”. I had never heard the word “grooming” so I immediately googled that word as well as church abuse. The website that popped up was the Hope of Survivors! It was here stories of women that matched my own! As tears fell on my cheeks, I found myself experiencing mixed emotions; thankful to finally understand what I had been through, yet mournful at the realization! The Hope of Survivors is where my healing began! I will be forever thankful! I am proud to promote this organization they will have my financial support so other women like me will have a place to go and learn about what they’ve been through so healing can begin!

Had it not been for the Hope of Survivors I would have never been able to make sense out of what happened to me at the hands of my pastor! They offered light in the midst of darkness! A willing volunteer lovingly wept with me and helped me through so many dark days! Offered me hope on days that felt hopeless. When I plead for help for my husband, Mr. Nelson called him personally! The Hope of Survivors was a life giving resource when life seemed hopeless! I thank God for their tireless, sacrificial ministry to anyone who seeks help, whatever their denomination.
