Teach Your community With Our Support

No child should endure the trauma of sexual abuse, and no survivor should silently suffer from its long-term impacts. We advocate for open, honest discussions around this difficult issue to help raise awareness and reduce stigma. With clinically proven tools and resources, Saprea empowers survivors, parents, and community members with the knowledge needed to protect, heal, and overcome.

Start Or Join a Saprea
Support Group

Saprea created support groups because a safe community has been shown to be a powerful tool in the healing process. While we created the curriculum for the groups, each individual group is formed and led by a survivor in their own communities or online. The materials and practices used in the groups are clinically reviewed and evidence based. Saprea Support Groups are provided at no cost to participants.

Are You a Survivor Looking for a Healing Community?

You can connect with a new avenue of healing and help to bring these healing resources to other survivors in your community—in person or online. Find a support group near you.
Saprea Support Groups are led by survivors for survivors.

Are You a Supporter Looking to Connect with Survivors?

Below are a few suggestions of how to bring Saprea Support Groups to the survivors in your life.

  • Tell survivors about this free resource. They can start a group or join an existing group.
  • Share about Saprea Support Groups on social platforms. See how below.
  • Help a survivor, interested in starting a group, find a location or an online platform and help them promote
    the group at their direction. Find a support group near you.

Attend one of our monthly Saprea Support Group interest meetings to learn more and talk with a Saprea representative. These meetings provide valuable overview information as well as allow you to ask any questions you have.

“It only takes a few seconds or minutes to share a post(s) on social media, but it can be a life-changing moment for a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. You never know who needs to hear or see that message.
It can mean all the difference in the world for the person who sees it or for someone they care about.”

Host a kintsugi workshop

Kintsugi classes have been an integral part of our healing retreats since the very beginning. Kintsugi is the Japanese philosophy that the value of an object is not in its perfection, but in its history and resilience. Hosting a Kintsugi Workshop as a fundraiser is an amazing way to support survivors at retreat and inspire your community through a hands-on project and discussions of patience, compassion, and healing.

If you are interested, our team will help you connect with everything you need to know. Just enter your information in the form below, and one of our team members will reach out to you shortly, or you can reach out to us at fundraise@Saprea.org.

Christa’s story With Kintsugi

Christa had an assignment for one of her graduate school classes and decided to put together a kintsugi night to raise money for Saprea. She wasn’t sure how much interest there would be, but the event sold out and it was a huge success! Over 75 attendees learned about the healing power of kintsugi, had a fun and memorable night, and raised over $2,000 for the fight against child sexual abuse.

Want to get involved in other ways?

We would love to hear your creative ideas, and we are always looking for local event and in-office volunteers too!
