The keystone of our mission is to provide victims of sexual abuse and their families with professional psychotherapy services regardless of their ability to pay. SOAR relies on the generosity of the community for the support needed so no one is ever turned away because of a lack of money. SOAR offers several ways to donate.
2019 Annual Appeal
Did you know, 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime?
Sexual abuse is a very personal trauma. Perhaps you are fortunate enough not to be that 1 in 4 adults who has been sexually assaulted at least once in their lives, often well before their 10th birthday. But, you probably know someone who has.
It’s hard to imagine the pain many of these victims suffer in silence with for years, even decades, before they seek professional help to recover from their trauma. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Addiction, Major Depression and even Suicide are just a few of the debilitating conditions they may experience.
SOAR started as a small Wilmington based therapy program for adult victims of sexual trauma. In nearly 25 years it has grown into a statewide program providing individual, family and group therapy to child, teen and adult victims of sexual trauma as well as programs for secondary victims (non-offending family members).
In the past few years, high profile sexual abuse cases have brought this issue into the spotlight. We are encouraged that more victims have come forward to seek treatment as a result of these reports. However, this also presents us with a challenge as we struggle to meet the financial burden for this increased need. We very much need your help!
Currently, 70% of the 2,000+ clients who come to SOAR cannot afford part or all of their recovery treatment. Your donation of $50 will help one teenager become part of a group therapy program, while your donation of $150 will enable one family to be admitted into the program.
Sexual abuse can cast a shadow the length of a lifetime. With your support, we can fade that dark shadow for thousands of victims of sexual abuse in our community.
