survivor truths

Vera House is proud to share with you the following powerful, personal truths of courageous survivors. 

 
  • Alexandra's Truth

    "Now I have found hope and healing in sharing my story because, almost every time I do, someone comes up to me after and tells me that they identify with me; and they thank me."

    Alexandra

  • David's Truth

    "Through the course of individual counseling, I started to peel away the layers of the sickening secret I had been carrying."

    David

  • Melissa's Truth

    "To this day I do not understand nor will I probably ever understand why he did what he did. All I know is that on that night, at that moment, he forever changed who I am and how I will view the world."
