When a child discloses sexual abuse, it is common for parents, caregivers, and other caring adults to experience a multitude of feelings, ranging from anger and distress to confusion and numbness.  In moments like these, it might even be difficult for families to imagine a future for their child of recovery, growth, and viability.

The Hope Initiative seeks to support families that are impacted by child sexual abuse through means of reflection and exchange.  By inviting people with lived experiences to share testimonials on the importance of hope and resilience, The Hope Initiative wishes to inspire families of a heartening and promising future for their child post disclosure of child sexual abuse.
