Thanks to compassionate donors like you…
Eyes that have seen pain will find hope.
Imagine you are 16… life is full of friends, laughter and possibilities.
Imagine being raped twice in less than a year.
Imagine you are Nicole. Nicole, who had been raped twice, was cutting school, isolating from her friends, fighting with her parents and using substances to dull her emotions.
Imagine seeking help. Nicole, who believed no one would be able to understand, in desperation, took a chance and called BAWAR anyway. As she worked through her sexual assaults she began to understand how her behaviors were a reflection of unprocessed feelings. By the end of her 16 sessions,which you made possible through your generous donation, she applied to become a member of the Alameda County Youth Leadership Counsel; she went from failing classes to being on the honor roll and was chosen to be the editor of the yearbook. Her mother was also given counseling and the bond between mother and daughter grew stronger.
Imagine you are Nicole.
Imagine hundreds of Nicoles, young and old, who are suffering in silence.
Now, imagine what you can do to support their journey.
Last year people like you helped BAWAR provide free and confidential services to over 4,100 sexual assault survivors and their friends and family. With your help we plan to serve even more survivors next year.
You can support Nicole’s journey by investing in BAWAR today. Will you please consider a gift in support of BAWAR’s annual fund.
