Giving back is an integral part of my work. A portion of 1st Edition book sale in person and website purchased sales proceeds of “Hurt, Healing, Hope: Thriving beyond Sexual Assault” are destined to support survivors receiving services through the YWCA New Britain Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Service (SACS). SACS offers bilingual English-Spanish assistance to sexual assault survivors and their loved ones throughout the state of Connecticut. Services offered are critical in helping survivors and their families find hope for their future. Both staff and crisis advocates such as me are trained to work with hospital staff, the court system, public safety officers and counselors to assist those during the time they need it most. SACS has helped many survivors including myself as a college-student in my 20’s.  It is because of a crisis advocate that supported me in the months post sexual assault that I began journaling to heal.  Purchase your book here via the Shop.

Pay it Forward. Donate a Book and Journal.

Perhaps you have already purchased your personal copy of “Hurt, Healing, Hope:  Thriving beyond Sexual Assault” or “Write, Heal, Thrive: A Transformative Journaling Experience”and you would now like to support our mission of giving voice to survivors of sexual violence.  You can make a difference by purchasing a book or journal for donation! 

By purchasing a book or journal for yourself, you can read first-hand accounts of survivors at the beginning of our healing journey and reflect on your own experiences as a survivor, a thriver, a supporter, or by someone who is searching for greater reflection in their life..  By purchasing a book and journal to donate you are increasing the potential for survivors who might not have access to such resources to begin their own healing.  Supplying survivor support materials such as “Hurt, Healing, Hope: Thriving beyond Sexual Assault” or the Write, Heal, Thrive journal to rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters, womens centers, mental health institutions, libraries, not-for-profit organizations, and community centers help break the silence surrounding sexual violence and give a survivor additional support. 

By purchasing a book or journal to donate you help survivors everywhere in the United States.

Three books closed on top of one another. There is a fourth book open on top of the three books. There is a floating heart above the open book.
