Initial Services
Sexual abuse is an epidemic but every story is different. Each victim is like no other.
We like to think of R2R as a kind of “support triage unit.” We assess your individual needs to tailor a program that will put you in charge of your recovery and empower you to be proactive in your healing process.

services-home-counseling_referrals

Counseling Referrals
By reaching out for help, your road to healing has already begun. We’re here to share the resources and provide compassionate counseling. We listen. We believe you. And we guarantee confidentiality. Our referrals are wide-reaching, for both victims and their families.

services-home-legal_counsel

Legal Counsel
If you’re a sexual abuse survivor, we provide referrals to attorneys who specialize in precisely such cases. We also help you navigate the court system and pursue possible criminal charges and restitution. All assistance from Road to Recovery is free and referrals are made based on your ability to pay.

services-home-financial_assistance

Financial Assistance
We provide financial aid, mainly in the form of emergency assistance. R2R also works with you to determine which public benefits you may be eligible for and works to secure them. We do not ask for social security numbers or employee status. We do not conduct background checks. We simply open ourselves to all who approach us and put the power in their hands.
