– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
What Helping Hands does:
Our advocates help survivors of sexual violence find safety.
This is one survivor’s story of how an advocate can help:
It seemed like everyone in the community knew—and liked—my spouse. So many times, I heard how lucky I was to have him in my life. Not because he was well-to-do. Not because he was smart. But because he was so charming.
No one knew how desperate the children and I had become. Hidden under the veil of our beautiful house and my husband’s good job, we lived in quiet terror.
It took me years. But finally I went to Helping Hands. I didn’t know how they could help, but a friend said they could.
They told me I could be safe.
Finally, there was hope.
I knew—thanks to my advocate— I took my first step toward safety.P10609 GRG Gorge Giving 2020-proof (1) 31
