Out of the Shadows is about shining a light–exposing darkness.
It’s about giving the light of HOPE to innocent victims of abuse and the evil that is among us and holding the abusers accountable.
It’s helping those hold that light who are unable to do it on their own.
No more silence. No more darkness.
We have seen the light of hope and we can do this together!
As the founder of Out of the Shadows, my lawsuit is about shining the light on evil, regardless of how long ago the evil occurred.
I have always said “There is always hope” and I have a small tattoo on the inside of my wrist that reads “hope” as a reminder. My prayer is that other survivors will see this suit as a way for them to realize it is never too late to tell their stories and seek justice for crimes of abuse they endured.
My heart is in helping others that can relate with me and so many others. That is why I felt led to start Out of the Shadows. If you’d like to donate, please know that all donations to Out of the Shadows will go to continue our mission and helping those who need HOPE and HEALING.
Heartfelt thanks for your support.
