– 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 listened.

They believed.

They told me I could be safe.

Finally, there was hope.

I knew—thanks to my advocate— I took my first step toward safety.
