Tiempo de Volar

(English)

Recuperarse del trauma del abuso sexual infantil es difícil en cualquier circunstancia, no importan quiénes, o de dónde seamos, pero puede parecer imposible para muchas mujeres inmigrantes.

Las barreras idiomáticas, el complicado sistema de justicia y el temor a que pedir ayuda pueda poner en peligro su seguridad y la de su familia son sólo algunas de las razones que hacen que muchas sobrevivientes de abuso sexual carguen solas con el peso de su historia.

Tiempo de Volar Helps Heal

(Espanol)

Healing from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse is difficult regardless of who you are or where you’re from. But it can feel impossible to many migrant survivors. Language barriers, complicated systems of criminal justice, and the belief that asking for help could very well jeopardize your personal or family safety are a few reasons many migrant survivors simply carry their trauma burden alone.

When disclosure is delayed

By Mary Ellen Stone, Executive Director

Over the last four decades, KCSARC has helped thousands of adults and children who have survived sexual assault and abuse. We provide a 24-hour Resource Line, legal advocacy, therapy, family education and other direct support. These services help alleviate the trauma of sexual assault, and help hold perpetrators accountable.

CONNECTING COMPLEX SYSTEMS

In the months after #MeToo began trending on social media, there was a 56% increase to KCSARC’s 24-Hour Resource Line. While we never could have predicted that this hashtag would take off in the fall of 2017, we have known for a long time that survivors need more, and better connected, supportive services. And we have been preparing to expand our services across the county.

King County is uniquely complex, with 39 law enforcement jurisdictions, three courthouses, 28 hospitals, and eight Child Protective Services offices.

Inciting fear, separating families no way to end sexual violence

With the nation’s immigration policies and scenes of family separations in the news, we want to take the opportunity to share with you, our supporters, how recent policies and decisions are affecting some of our clients and other survivors of sexual assault in our service area.
