We Believe Survivors Fund
Prairie Unitarian Universalist Church is committed to centering the needs of survivors of sexual assault and abuse. We know that when sexual assault and abuse happens in relation to people in a position of trust, particularly through a church or other religious organization, that the trauma can be especially profound. Prairie is participating with other UU churches in Colorado to provide crisis support to help survivors navigate the various systems they may come in contact with legal, organizational, healthcare, etc.
Additionally, Prairie has established a dedicated We Believe Survivors Fund to assist survivors with the costs of mental health support and legal fees. While we recognize that this in and of itself is not likely to completely cover either the financial and emotional costs of survivorship, our hope is that survivors will know that here, they are believed and supported.
Donations are tax-deductible and while they are made to Prairie Unitarian Universalist Church, they will be allocated to the We Believe Survivors Fund to be distributed by our Fund Administrator or Prairie’s Executive Board’s designee. Donor anonymity will be protected.
