Creating a Community of Survivors of Clergy Abuse
We are creating a community of survivors of clergy abuse by providing people who care with a way to make a difference in the lives of survivors, providing survivors with resources for healing and resiliency, and educating all on the long term effects of trauma from abuse.
Our founders and board of directors envision a safe place for prayer, support, and connection that meets the community of survivors of clergy abuse where they are and puts their needs first. In our first three years, we have met many who have been affected by this issue; the community we meet contributes directly to the type of services and resources we offer. We value the gifts of all in our growing community of survivors of clergy abuse and those who support them. We work towards healing our family in the Kansas City diocese.
