In the time of the #MeToo movement, the need for a program like Porchlight Counseling Services is more evident than ever before. This grant from the VNA Foundation, in the amount of $50,000, will make it possible for Porchlight to serve an even greater number of people who need these services the most.
Did you know that according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), an estimated 90% of sexual assault survivors on college campuses don’t report the crime to their school or to the authorities? Time and again, Porchlight is contacted by students who have been scared to speak out, and who have struggled to complete their coursework and resume their lives after an assault.
Through the support of individual donors and grants like the one awarded by the VNA Foundation, Porchlight can continue its mission to reach out to these students, who too often feel alone and in the dark. By providing free counseling services to these survivors, Porchlight strives to bring them back into the light.
