Project Report | Oct 21, 2019
You Helped Jake!

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

Jake loves traveling abroad. He and a friend spent September traveling throughout the Far East. One evening Jake's friend went out with some people he had met. Jake didn't feel well so he stayed in.

About 2am Jake heard a commotion. He got up from bed to check what was going on. The next thing he knew two men wrestled him to the ground, gagged him and tied his hands together. Jake fought back but the two men overpowered him. One held him down while the other raped him. They called him names and spit on him, then left.

Jake was in shock when he called Pathways. He was barely able to speak. A Pathways' case manager stayed on the phone for several hours with Jake. Jake did make a police report and his case is still under investigation. He also received the medical assistance he needed. We are continuing to provide support to Jake.

Without donors like you, we would not be able to provide the critical care so important in the immediate aftermath of a sexual assault for LGBTQ abroad. Thank you!
