There is life after abuse.
Let us show you.
SOAR is where women who have been sexually abused can find hope and healing through Jesus Christ.
Yes, it is possible to overcome the effects of abuse and replace your shame, guilt and pain with strength and confidence. The road to recovery can be difficult but we are willing to walk beside you.
If you are dealing with your abuse in counseling or are just ready to talk about it our group might be right for you.
Childhood sexual abuse is a significant problem both in the U.S. and abroad. Learn the Facts
We will walk beside you.
Our support groups are led by trained facilitators to help guide women on their journey to wholeness.
We walk through recovery together. We walk through life together. We share ups and downs in our present lives not just our past wounds.
Group leaders are available for one-on-one encouragement and discussion even outside of regular support groups.
The Road to Recovery
Hope is when someone setting across the table from you understands your pain. When you begin to realize you are normal for what you have been through and that others have experienced the same. You're no longer alone.
Healing brings a peace deep down inside, a peace that makes our present day life better. We like ourselves more, our relationships improve, our shame and guilt fade. It doesn't happen overnight, but it is worth the journey.
Freedom comes from regaining your voice - the voice that was silenced by keeping the secret of childhood sexual abuse. Finding your voice changes you on the inside. You finally begin to take of the masks and become real.
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will SOAR on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.
Happy are those who trust in the Lord, who rely on the Lord.
