Understand survivors. Hear their stories.
My Story. My Tears. My Healing.
81% of women and 43% of men have experienced sexual abuse in their lifetime; 1/3 of them were assaulted between age 11 & 17. Everyone has a story to tell.
Victims are often “groomed” into thinking that the assaults are their fault; That they “wanted it” or “caused it”. The lies they believe become the chains that bind them.
If you, or someone you know needs help, call now. We are here 24 hours a day, just for you .

The Healing Begins
Once in a PATH Safe House, a survivor can relax, eat, bathe, sleep and put on clean clothes. Sometimes this is the first time in years the survivor has felt cared for.
The Healing Doesn’t Stop There:
Reintegration & Care
Providing care and hope for you, who have been traumatized by prostitution and sexual abuse, is what we love.
Brave girls, ages 4-40, tell of the darkness that invaded their lives, and the light that followed.
“My mom called PATH when I was 17 because I got in with a group that started selling me. I was still living at home and didn’t understand what all was happening. I moved into the PATH Safe House when I turned 18 and lived there for about a year but left so I could go back to the group of bad people. Today, several years later, I finally see what I was living in and what was going on. I had called PATH several times over the years but just couldn’t leave, until 4 months ago. Now I am living in a safe place and going to the PATH Center every day. I thank God and PATH for never giving up on me! I still feel embarrassed for what all went on, but I’m at least able to talk about it now.” – Samantha
