Welcome to Crowns of Hope Texas!
|It is estimated that there are 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in America today.
Approximately 31% of women in prison state that they had been abused as children.
Approximately 95% of teenage prostitutes have been sexually abused.
It is estimated that children with disabilities are 4 to 10 times more vulnerable to sexual abuse than their non-disabled peers.
Long term effects of child abuse include fear, anxiety, depression, anger, hostility, inappropriate sexual behavior, poor self-esteem, tendency toward substance abuse and difficulty with close relationships.
Clinical findings of adult victims of sexual abuse include problems in interpersonal relationships associated with an underlying mistrust. Generally, adult victims of incest have a severely strained relationship with their parents that is marked by feelings of mistrust, fear, ambivalence, hatred, and betrayal. These feelings may extend to all family members.
Guilt is universally experienced by almost all victims. Courtois and Watts described the “sexual guilt” as “guilt derived from sexual pleasure”
This is why Crowns of Hope was formed. We aim to help victims pay for the therapy they need so they can be a survivor and not a statistic!
