This Was Something I Have Needed For a Long Time

Danielle, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, tells about the healing she found at The Haven Retreat.

When I came to The Haven Retreat, I was terrified. I didn’t know what to expect. I was worried about my kids and my husband at home. What would they do without me? But when I started learning more about my trauma and how to cope, and that I am not alone, I realized this was something I have needed for a long time.

Not only did I come out of this experience stronger than ever before. I gained sisters, a family that I will never forget. And I have learned how important it is to put myself first sometimes. Letting go of my past, and forgiving, so I can move on.
