Pandora’s Project – A Great Resource for Survivors!

Pandora's Project, an online support group, message board, and chat room for rape and sexual abuse survivors

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about a great resource for Sexual Assault Survivors, Pandora’s Project at www.pandys.org.

Pandora’s Project sponsors the internet’s largest support community for those who have been the victim of sexual violence.  They believe peer support is an important complement to therapy and other traditional methods of healing. Survivors find comfort through commonality, the lessening of shame, positive role-modeling, practical assistance, and a virtual shoulder to lean on – any time they need it.  Available 24 hours a day and free of charge to any survivor who has internet access, the Pandora’s Aquarium message board and chat room offer victims of sexual violence a refuge to share experiences, seek advice, and provide support.

The organization also operates a free sexual assault lending library, maintains resource lists for survivors in need of face-to-face support, and organizes retreat weekends for survivors ready to take their healing one step farther.

Pandora’s Project is managed and staffed by more than 50 survivors, all of whom are unpaid volunteers.

What Pandora’s Project has to offer you:

The myth of Pandora taught us that there is evil in the world. But after Pandora’s box was opened, one thing remained: Hope. Though rape and sexual abuse can have lasting effects, recovery from sexual violence is possible. Pandora’s Project is here to help you on your journey.
