Heal from Child Sex Abuse – The Jan Broberg Foundation

Community | Healing | Prevention 



  • Healing Through Community – We believe that no survivor should face their healing journey alone. Our online community THRIVIVORS is a compassionate place SURVIVORS find understanding, support groups, special events, spaces to share and tools to rebuild and THRIVE in their lives.
  • Awareness For PreventionBy raising awareness about the prevalence and consequences of childhood sexual abuse, we empower individuals, families, and communities to recognize the signs, take action, and prevent abuse before it occurs. 
  • Changing Public Policy We advocate for policy and legislation that protects survivors, and holds perpetrators accountable. By actively engaging with policymakers and collaborating with other organizations, we strive to make a lasting impact on future generations.
