The mission of The Foundation of Survivors of Abuse is to provide hope, encouragement and empowerment to survivors everywhere by leveraging advocacy and education to eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes of childhood sexual abuse.
The statistics are staggering:
- One in four girls and one in six boys is sexually abused before the age of 18.
- An estimated 80% of all sexual abuse goes unreported.
- Sexually violent acts against children and adolescents cost $116 billion/year.
By the time a victim is ready to report, more often than not their short window to prosecute has closed and cannot be reopened.
Prevention, Justice and Healing
We must work together to remove the time limit on justice and healing for survivors everywhere, and use our voices to protect the most innocent from further harm.
