Support the JRCC. Support survivors.
“...Even though this has not been an easy time for me, and there is still a long way for me to go, this support group strengthened and empowered me to advance towards achieving other goals..”
Hila, 21, Support Group for childhood abuse survivors.
“...My connection with the center is not a regular one, the women of the center accompanied me in the criminal process, in the hospital and during sleepless nights – but they are there for me not only when I’m down, they’re there for moments of joy too, in parties I organize..They see the strength and powers I have..”
T, has been in contact with the JRCC for over 15 years.
“Those words “Rape Crisis Center, Hello...” are still scary. I never know how to start the conversation. To identify myself? Not to identify myself? The amount of times I have disconnected the line is still larger that the amount of conversations I've had, but that sentence today, other than fear, has another ring to it. I'm home.”
S., has been in contact with the JRCC for the last 5 years.
“I’m a survivor, but that is definitely not all I am. The women of the center see all that I am and help me see it myself.”
M., has been in contact with the JRCC for the last 10 years.
