Summary

Project Anchor is a specialized program that will aid female adolescent victims (ages 14-19) of sexual and physical abuse through the three stages of healing. Each group session will have a therapeutic goal & hands on activities including journeling, art and music therapies. This program will change the lives of these young women and provide them with encouragement, support and a place to heal, thrive and overcome. Includes:36 group sessions/10 individual sessions/graduation celebration.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

According to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network), every 2 minutes, someone in the US is sexually assaulted. 44% of those victims are adolescent victims under the age of 18. Victims of sexual abuse are: 3 times more likely to suffer from depression, 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide, 6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol and 26 times more likely to abuse drugs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through group treatment sessions & individual counseling, Project Anchor will use proven techniques to help survivors of abuse, child molestation, child sexual abuse, incest, or rape process their trauma, re-frame it, and learn recovery tools and healthy coping skills in order to find healing. Our program consists of 36 weeks of group sessions & 10 individual sessions. Each session consists of a therapeutic goal & art projects which help facilitate processing and healing.

Potential Long Term Impact

Fair Haven Center for Women believe that healing from the pain, shame and long-term affects of sexual abuse can occur by working a recovery program. Participants will be equipped with tools to overcome the shame and pain of sexual violence which will lesson the likelihood of depression & suicide. With healthy coping tools, participants will have a less likelihood of participating in drug and alcohol abuse. With self care training, participants can work through traumatic triggers from PTSD.
