Therapy Letters

How Kids First helped me

As children complete therapy, often times the child abuse survivor tells us how we helped him or her on their journey to freedom! The words of these child abuse survivors are powerful and are meant to show you how your support has helped child abuse victims break the vow of silence, to end fear and keeping secrets.
