At Rebuilding Hope, we acknowledge that COVID-19 has made this year very difficult for our clients and staff. In March, we had to cancel our in-person fundraising event. In July, we experienced grant budget cuts at the state level, which impacted our staff and program capacity. It is critical now more than ever for us to be able to reach and serve those at risk and impacted by sexual violence in our community.

Pierce County reports 33% more instances of rape than any other County in Washington. Child sex abuse cases currently skyrocket across Pierce County and we have experienced a spike in teens seeking sexual assault-focused therapy. Despite having to reduce staffing capacity, we continue to receive referrals for at-risk, trafficked, and exploited youth every month in need of comprehensive, wrap-around support. Now, more than ever, survivors are in need of access to our 24/7 crisis intervention, victim advocacy and trauma-focused therapy services.

You can help us support more survivors on their path toward healing!

Starting today – Giving Tuesday – we are launching a month-long opportunity for you to help us fill our current funding gap of $20,000 during Rebuilding Hope’s December Giving.

Below are a variety of ways that your gift can make a direct impact on the survivors we serve across Pierce County.
