Update #3

over 1 year ago

Did you know that 14% of victims of a sexual offense in the United States are UNDER the age of 5 years old? 46.6% of those children are sexually abused by a family member. Their childhood is ripped away from them before it can even begin.

You can help! Your tax-deductible donation will support education programs for the community as well as much-needed programs in various life soft-skills for survivors. Won't you help save a child from a life-shattering experience by donating $5, $10, $20, or more?

Your donation will make a difference in the lives of survivors, families, and communities.

More Info

 My name is Deanna Carpenter and I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse (3-15) as well as domestic violence (19-22). I hold degrees in psychology and public relations. I am currently working on a doctorate. 

After 47 years of silence and protecting my abusers, I am telling my story of transforming from a victim to a survivor to a thriver to inspire others to never give up on themselves. Surviving childhood sexual abuse, human trafficking, and domestic violence impacted my life severely and continues to impact my life today. The difference is, I have more control over how it affects my life now and I choose positive impacts.  I use my experiences to drive myself to help others. 

I tell my story to encourage other survivors. There is life after abuse. I speak out to educate others on how to recognize the signs of abuse, relationship red flags, and to speak up if they suspect abuse or are being abused as well as giving others the confidence to reach out to friends or family they believe may be in need of help due to abuse.
