Story of Healing
Earlier this month, we introduced you to Iona.
Read Iona's Full Story HERE
We shared that Iona endured years of sexual abuse beginning at the age of 10 - by a family member – just across the street from her childhood home. For much of her youth, Iona was manipulated, coerced and mistreated by someone who was trusted to care for her. Until one night, Iona found the courage to share with her mother what had been happening and everything changed.
After a referral to the CARE House for services, Iona was met by supportive and experienced staff who listened as she shared her experience, collaborated with a team of local agencies to investigate the allegations, and connected her with evidence-supported counseling and advocacy – all within a safe and nurturing environment.
After months of counseling and years of advocacy support, Iona’s abuser is behind bars.
…But what if her story was different?
What if we could prevent abuse before it happened?
Through quality, evidence-supported prevention programming, you have the power to prevent child abuse.
At the CARE House, we believe that child abuse is 100% preventable. Our vision is of a world where every child can grow up in a safe and nurturing environment - free from the trauma of abuse and neglect.
