Challenge

Childhood sexual abuse remains among the most under reported & least-discussed crimes in our nation and affects the physical and mental health of millions in our communities. Incest happens in families that are financially privileged, as well as of low socioeconomic status; and those of all education levels, races, ethnic descent, and religious traditions. While there are many resources available to child victims, adults who have suffered sexual abuse as children have few resources.

Solution

The WINGS Foundation support groups are designed to help adult survivors to cope with these challenges and to live healthy, happy, violence-free lives. WINGS provides an option for adults who wish to heal from the crime of child sexual abuse. We provide ongoing support designed to help adults heal from their trauma, lessen feelings of isolation and shame, and begin to break cycles of abuse in their own families and communities.

Long-Term Impact

WINGS will offer over 26 groups for women and men in both English and Spanish for survivors of sexual abuse, loved ones and allies of survivors. We will provide over 1800 units of victim services, respond to over 500 victims and over 300 members will attend groups.
