Support Group for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

4 Comments

We have some exciting news for survivors living in the Treasure Coast area of South Florida. Starting Thursday, April 16th, we will be holding a monthly support group for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The treasure coast is made up of North Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian Counties. This includes cities from Sebastian and Vero in the north, through Fort Pierce, Port Saint Lucie, Jensen Beach, Stuart, to Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Riviera in the south. It’s the area marked in red on the map below. The group will meet the 3rd Thursday of every month.

**UPDATE**  OUR NEXT MEETING IS JUNE 18th 

Here in the USA, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18.

Tragically over 90% of those abused had this happen at the hands of someone they knew, trusted or loved. Seldom, if ever, do they report this most heinous of crimes against a child.

If this has happened to you or to someone you know, please understand and pass along this simple message…

…you are not alone. They are not alone.

Help is available right here in your neighborhood.

Please contact “Together We Heal”, “Mary’s Shelter of the Treasure Coast” or “SNAP-Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests” and we will provide the time, date and location.

Working together, survivors of this crime can have a life of dignity and hope. Together, we can truly heal and provide shelter for one another.

In 2006 David took the first step in acknowledging the sexual abuse that was perpetrated against him from the ages of 12 to 15. During those 3 years, the foundation his family had worked so hard to build within him was destroyed by one man, his youth minister. The result was his heart, mind and faith were lost. After having kept this secret for more than 25 years, he was finally able to reveal to his family and friends the reason behind the addiction and self-destruction that at times had him incarcerated, eventually left him destitute and nearly ended his life. Fortunately he was blessed with amazing friends and a loving family who helped him get the help and therapy he so desperately needed. He was finally able to get clean from the grip of addiction and face the demon of sexual abuse that had clouded his life for so long. Now he and his wife work to aid their fellow survivors through the non-profit they created, Together We Heal. The mission of Together We Heal is to provide guidance for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, educating parents and all adults through public speaking on matters concerning Childhood Sexual Abuse and giving a safe forum for victims of abuse to share, learn and heal.

  1. I wish the group all the best and for more to come…

  2. Kind of sucks when you live in midwest small town America….not fancy enough to go to group meetings or gatherings. Florida is nice but not everybody lives there or can afford to go.
