The vision of Hope Recovery is to offer the opportunity of growth to survivors and those supporting survivors, ensuring compassionate care as survivors make their way on the journey of recovery and healing.
Statement of Faith
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Our founder has had it on her heart for some time to reach out to those who are hurting and looking for recovery. Being a survivor of trauma and mood disorders herself, she spent many years working on issues that needed to be addressed about her life and her past. One of her struggles was finding support she needed, at a cost that she could afford. After speaking with a small group of her friends who have a passion for the same issues, together they decided to start a support forum online, and then in 2013 to incorporate as a faith-based nonprofit to offer supportive resource for those struggling with trauma recovery. This is based on the Christian faith.
- Trauma is not the fault of the victim, it happens for various reasons and while it may impact faith, there is hope.
- Victims can become survivors and lead healthy and productive lives.
- Survivors can overcome the ill effects of their trauma and can find healing.
- Survivors have the right to professional, ethical, and healthy treatment and support.
- Past trauma is not an excuse to traumatize others.
- Survivors have the right to receive healthy care, appropriate touch, and hugs, which may have been missed out on as a child without sexual overtones.
- Survivors have the right to say no.
- Survivors have the right to have a safe and supportive environment to recover in.
- Survivors have the right to speak their own opinions and the responsibility to respect the opinions of others.
- Survivors have the right to be listened to.
- Survivors have the right to agree or disagree, and the responsibility to allow others to do the same.
- Survivors have the right to be part of the decision making process and the responsibility to be accountable for those decisions chosen.
- Survivors are not alone, even when it feels that is true. God loves survivors!
