I am a survivor, a support group facilitator, an advocate and a volunteer. I have volunteered as a group facilitator in Toronto for men's and co-ed support groups after attending the program myself. Knowing the challenges of commuting to another city for help, I wanted to build a community of survivors in Halton Hills.
I am an educator, an advocate, a volunteer and the wife of a childhood sexual abuse survivor. When Chris first came to me with his childhood abuse I had no point of reference or access to resources to help him, or myself. While doing research I discovered that there is very little support for family or friends of survivors. Together, Chris and I made it our goal to create resources and a support network in our community for survivors and their loved ones.
