A support group for those of us who have suffered abuse as children and we want to help ourselves and others heal the child within us so we can lead the healthy, happy, full lives we were intended to lead.

Research points to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome arising in many adults as a survival mechanism. Until we start to look at our lives through new eyes, we CAN'T see the impact of what happened to us as children.

We will start by following the format provided by ASCA - Adult Supervisors of Child Abuse created by the Morris Center.   The format is a 21 step psychological based program.  This is not a spiritual based step program.  You do not need to be doing the steps to participate.  You just have to have a desire to heal.

We are a peer to peer support group; we are not professional therapists. If you need professional help, or if you find yourself thinking of harming yourself or someone else please contact one of the following:

Dial 2-1-1 for the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They offer free crisis counseling along and information/ referral to over 3,500 community resources. You can also go to their website at www.211atyourfingertips.org.
