"I was sexually assaulted on January 9th, 2018 in my own home. After coming to terms with what had happened, Bridge to Hope was right beside me when I made the decision to press charges.
Through all of this, Bridge to Hope helped me realize that this wasn’t my fault and that I’m not alone. My friends and family have shown me that my dreams haven’t changed and they are still just as achievable."
