Helping Sexual Abuse Victims at the YWCA

I have been given a wonderful opportunity to help women victimized by sexual abuse at the YWCA of McLean County.  I will be able to volunteer my services of bodywork and Reiki to help them reduce stress and anxiety and regain a sense of normalacy with their life again.   Here is a brief description of what the program Stepping Stones is all about.

One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. Stepping Stones, YWCA’s sexual assault program, provides 24-hour assistance for sexual assault and sexual abuse victims and their families in McLean County. This free, confidential service also serves as the central sexual assault resource for McLean County. Services focus on empowering survivors, their families, and their friends on the path of healing, building relationships with professionals and agencies that will be part of the process, and educating the community about sexual assault. Stepping Stones also welcomes the opportunity to present information about sexual assault, date rape drugs, dating violence, or rape culture to a wide variety of audiences.
