In November, Hearts of Hope launched a new campaign entitled, “NO MORE: Together we can end sexual violence in Acadiana”. This virtual campaign is focused on education, awareness, and donations and is being broadcasted through Hearts of Hope’s website and social media pages.
“The goal of this campaign is to educate community members about the issue of sexual violence, increase awareness about our agency and programs, and raise critical funding to continue and expand our services throughout our multi-parish area,” said Amidie Shaw, Director of Volunteers and Community Outreach at Hearts of Hope.
Community Impact
Hearts of Hope is the Children’s Advocacy Center for 8 parishes in Acadiana, serving children with open investigations of sexual and extreme physical abuse; it is also the Sexual Assault Response Center (Rape Crisis Center) for 6 parishes in Acadiana, responding to adult survivors 24-hours a day via their Crisis Line, and in partner Emergency Rooms at area hospitals. Hearts of Hope recruits, trains, and schedules the specialized nurses (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners) who collect evidence from survivors in the Emergency Rooms, and theirother services include forensic interviews, individual and group counseling, legal and medical advocacy and more.
“Hearts of Hope serves more than 700 adult and child clients each year, and every service we provide is free to every client, every time,” said Kimberly Young, Executive Director. “Community awareness and action is critical. We believe that joining us to say “NO MORE” will
change the way perpetrators and victims of sexual violence are treated, and will improve the safety of our community for everyone.”
NO MORE
Education pieces, issue area trainings, images, and messaging related to the impact and effects of sexual violence, and community involvement are being distributed through Hearts of Hope’s website and social media pages, with new content launched daily through the end of the year.
