You are not alone!

If you have just found out that your child has been sexually abused, we understand what you are going through. We understand from personal experience how devastating it can be to hear that your child has been sexually violated. We understand the emotional roller coaster you are on, including bouts of despair, confusion, anger, fear, and guilt. We understand the stress and pressure of having to manage interactions with law enforcement, child protective services, attorneys, therapists, court proceedings, and your child's pain - all while keeping up with the normal routine of work, grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, bills, and homework. You may have even lost your income because your child's offender was the sole income provider. It may feel like more than you can handle, but you can. We have been through it and come out the other side and so will you.
It doesn't matter if your child is still a minor or is a grown adult, it is no less devastating to hear that your child has been abused. It is particularly difficult if their offender is a family member, maybe even your spouse, or worse yet another one of your children. This is a difficult time, no matter what your specific circumstances are, and KKC Cares is committed to connecting parents with others who have gone before them so they are not walking through this alone. Please reach out to us at email@example.com if you are interested in joining our peer-to-peer non-offending parent support group.
