HELP PAGE

When we started our ministry in 2008, we thought that we were alone in our efforts. Since then we have found dozens of hot-lines, ministries, and organizations that are offering help, hope and healing to survivors. If we can be of assistance to you or your organization by speaking in a conference, training your staff or providing advice please don't hesitate to call us at (607) 359-4366.
