WELLNESS FUNDS PROGRAM
Where we give money to survivors to use toward their legal, medical and/or mental health care. It doesn’t just stop after the assault; healing is legal, physical and mental and comes at a financial cost.
The VOICES and MESSAGES related to sexual assault are often muted.
Through YIS Motivational Speaking
program, we will AMPLIFY those voices, messages, and stories of triumph and healing. As well as connect, interact, inspire and educate survivors and the community.
