We’re here to tell you—and the rest of our community—that you are worthy of being treated with dignity and respect. Your unique, irreplaceable life is valuable. You are important.
OAASIS is growing a community where all people live full, healthy, joyful lives and all relationships are built on respect, consent, and equity.
Child sexual abuse has an impact on the person who was abused, their loved ones, and our community. This impact can shift as people are truly heard, seen, and accompanied. People can find healing after child sexual abuse. This statement isn’t wishful thinking; it’s based on the science of trauma and resiliency, as well as the lived experiences of countless people.
If you or someone you love was sexually abused as a child, help may be available. If your child has been sexually abused, you may want to contact your local child advocacy center, which provides a law enforcement response and resources in a child-friendly setting. If you are an adult who was sexually abused as a child, you may want to contact your local domestic and sexual violence services program, which provides resources whether or not you want to report to law enforcement (if you are a minor or want help for a child who is being sexually abused, then they are legally required to report the abuse to law enforcement).
Learn about child sexual abuse and trauma
