How We Came About
Our Executive Director has had it on her heart for some time to reach out to those who are hurting and looking for recovery. Being a survivor of trauma and mood disorders herself, she has spent many years working on issues that needed to be addressed about her life and her past. One of her struggles was finding support she needed, at a cost that she could afford. After speaking with a small group of her friends who have a passion for the same issues, together they decided to start a support forum online, and then to incorporate as a nonprofit as a national supportive Christian resource for those struggling with trauma recovery. Individuals are not required to be Christians to receive information. We do not evangelize or proselytize - we accept people where they are. We do not get into theological discussions or debates. We do offer spiritual support through Chaplains to those who desire this component of support through Christian Forums Ask A Chaplain forum. This is a private moderated forum.
