Please help Jackson recover from child abuse

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center

Summary

In October we helped Sarah escape abuse in Italy and flee home with her son Jackson. Jackson was physically abused by his father. He is having nightmares and anxiety attacks. Sarah desperately needs to get Jackson help to overcome his trauma. We have found a very good therapist that will help Jackson on a sliding scale of $40 per session for 10 sessions.

Challenge

Jackson suffered extreme physical abuse from his father. Now that they are safe, Sarah needs to get Jackson help as soon as possible so he can recover from child abuse.

Solution

With these 10 sessions of therapy, Jackson can begin the long road to recovery from child abuse.

Long-Term Impact

The project serves 500 women per year empowering them to find alternatives to a life of violence so their children grow up in violence free homes with their self-esteem in tact with the hope of stopping the cycle of violence in future generations.
