Welcome to the Foundation for Survivors of Abuse (FSA)

We created this non-profit organization to provide hope, encouragement 
and empowerment to survivors of abuse everywhere by working to remove 
the statute of limitations for crimes of sexual abuse.

For people who have survived sexual abuse, the effects/scars can be lasting and profound. All survivors need the opportunity to heal in their own time, at their own pace and on their own terms.

An essential part of the healing process for survivors is the ability to seek 
justice and prevent the potential for abuse against others by prosecuting the
predators who commit these vicious crimes. Currently, the statutes of 
limitations for crimes of sexual abuse vary widely from state to state, and fail 
to protect millions of innocent people dealing with the devastating effects of 
these crimes. The cruel, insidious nature of sexual abuse, often committed 
against the most vulnerable by those in relationships of trust, makes it 
extraordinarily difficult for survivors to come forward. According to the 
National Child Assault Prevention Project, more than 80 percent of abuse
cases involve a parent or step-parent, and almost half of abused children 
are between the ages of 5 and 11. One fourth of all girls are sexually 
assaulted before reaching the age of 18, and it is estimated that 80 percent 
of all sexual abuse goes unreported.

We invite you to work with us to remove these unenlightened, antiquated 
laws, and remove the time limit on justice and healing for survivors.
