The Hope of Survivors Named 2017 Top-rated Nonprofit »
The Hope of Survivors was named a "2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit" by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.
Providing emotional and spiritual support to victims of clergy sexual abuse, as well as education and prevention workshops for clergy and church administrators, The Hope of Survivors assists victims from all denominations and faith communities worldwide.
"We are honored to be named a 2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit," says Samantha Nelson, CEO and Co-Founder of The Hope of Survivors. Proud of their accomplishments this year, Samantha listed providing conferences for victims to help further their healing, participating in research studies with Baylor University and others to help provide statistics and a broader scope and view of the issue of clergy sexual abuse, and much more.
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that a non-profit received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. One supporter of The Hope of Survivors wrote, "I have the greatest respect for what The Hope of Survivors does. I am one of their supporters and appreciate so much the frequent supportive updates and stories. This is certainly a ministry that is greatly needed; clergy abuse is not only overlooked, but the need for help is normally denied--"How could something so horrendous actually happen in the church?" But it does, and The Hope Of Survivors is there to help."
Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, said "The Hope of Survivors is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community, Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews from people who have direct experience working with The Hope of Survivors."
GreatNonprofits is the leading website where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.2 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities - as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid.
