The Awareness Center, Inc. is the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault (JCASA). We are dedicated to ending sexual violence in Jewish communities globally. We do our best to operate as "the make a wish foundation" for Jewish survivors of sex crimes, by offering a clearinghouse of information, resources, support and advocacy.
We are a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
As we all know when you come from an abusive family holidays can become difficult, especially for incest survivors who either can't be with relatives for safety reasons or find it difficult to be around family members.
Several adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse are looking for a place to go this year for Pesach. I wish The Awareness Center had the funds and staff to organize a seder in every community. We would love to find people who would be interested in doing this. Anyone up to organizing a seder for survivors on the east coast or anywhere else?
