We advocate for open discussions about sexual abuse through community dialogue and social awareness.
Who We Serve
1 in 4 women is a survivor of child sexual abuse. These women often spend decades trying to overcome the trauma of the abuse they endured as children.
Experiencing sexual trauma at a young age, oftentimes at the hands of an acquaintance or family member, can lead to feelings of guilt, shame, and hopelessness for years after the abuse has stopped. Survivors also often experience a range of symptoms related to the trauma of their abuse, such as:
Addictions and addictive behaviors
The Younique Foundation exists for the purpose of helping adult, female survivors of child sexual abuse navigate their healing journeys. We provide a range of free services, including:
THE HAVEN RETREAT
An immersive experience that begins with a 4-day educational retreat and continues with a 9-week online course. The retreat is designed to help survivors learn about the effects of childhood trauma, introduce concepts and practices that can promote healing, and offer tools survivors can use to address the effects of trauma on the brain and body.
Since its inception in December 2014, The Younique Foundation has worked diligently to serve survivors of child sexual abuse. We are proud to have:
Organized more than 170 retreats between our two locations in Utah and Georgia.
Helped more than 3,300 survivors on their healing journeys.
57 SUPPORT GROUPS
Supported the creation of more than 57 support groups that operate throughout the world.
Published over 200 online resources and 110+ videos.
The Younique Foundation employs more than 100 experienced professionals, including a full team of licensed clinical practitioners. We carefully vet each staff member who joins our team and are fortunate to have talented and dedicated individuals who bring depth and passion to our efforts.
In addition to providing healing resources, our team also focuses on the prevention of child sexual abuse through Defend Innocence, a brand of The Younique Foundation.
