This web site is dedicated to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us. We were shamed, ignored, not cared for, and traumatized as children. As adults, our needs are not recognized by employers, medical personnel are ill-informed about the long-term effects of childhood trauma, insurance companies discriminate against survivors by parceling out benefits and making us pay higher premiums than those with physical injuries, too many churches are uneducated in how to meet the spiritual needs of survivors, and most therapists are not trained adequately in the trauma disorders.
