Saprea exists to liberate individuals and society from child sexual abuse and its lasting impacts. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity, funded by a combination of public and private donations. Our offices are located in Lehi, Utah and Alpharetta, Georgia.
What We Do
Saprea empowers survivors with healing strategies, skills, and resources to reduce trauma symptoms, experience post-traumatic growth, and significantly improve the quality of their lives.
Saprea encourages parents and caregivers to proactively learn and apply the preventative skills needed to reduce the risk of sexual abuse impacting the children they love.
Saprea educates individuals about this worldwide epidemic and encourage them to take action in their communities.
In a conversation with his wife, Shelaine, Derek Maxfield lamented that someone should “do something” to help adult female survivors of child sexual abuse find hope and healing. He recognized that when you give someone hope and resources, they become the steward of their own healing. Together in 2014, the Maxfield family founded Saprea to fight child sexual abuse and its lasting impacts through healing and prevention services.
More than 4,000 survivors have attended Saprea Retreat—a place for survivors to learn healing tools to address childhood trauma, set intentions, and move forward in their healing journey with the support of fellow survivors.
Saprea Support Groups are available in 11+ countries and offered in four languages. These support groups allow adult female survivors to connect with other survivors in their own communities.
ONLINE HEALING RESOURCES
Saprea provides clinically proven resources to help survivors understand how trauma impacts the brain and body, as well as ways to further healing and post-traumatic growth.
We are committed to providing clear, timely information about our finances. 100% of donations made to Saprea go directly toward helping survivors heal and helping parents and caregivers reduce the risk of child sexual abuse.
