a Supportive Environment for Adult Survivors of Child Abuse & Trauma
Our vision is a world where every child is raised in a loving and nurturing environment, so there is no need to help adult survivors of child abuse.
Children should always be loved and nurtured by the people who raise them.
Children should always feel safe and secure in their environment.
Children should grow into adults who feel safe in their world, in control of their life, and able to contribute to society in a meaningful way.
“SEASCAT” is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating, finding, &/or providing a supportive living environment for adult survivors of childhood abuse for the purpose of allowing them the safety and security they need to focus on recovery.
We are not an online support group only for survivors. I have an extensive list of survivor forums for those interested. SEASCAT is for planning and organizing to fullfill our mission statement and welcome everyone with interest.
SEASCAT's been a dream for 15 years, but due to the struggles of daily living was only incorporated in May of '08. We are working on the 501(C)3.
Not long ago, the diagnosis of C-PTSD didn't even exist and forget trying to find a psychiatrist to accept the diagnosis of DID (MPD, then) . Now, there are more websites with useful information then I can keep track of! (I've been working on organizing my links and it's really quite overwhelming.)
There are two things that are different about SEASCAT:
our focus is "adult survivors of child abuse" (most org.s are slightly different such as DID, child abuse prevention, sexual abuse, domestic violence, PTSD mostly for veterans, etc.)
our goal of creating a supportive and nurturing "physical" environment.... an actual place for survivors to come to and feel safe while working on recovery (not a recovery program receiving $ from insurance and fees, not an online support group, not a weekly meeting.... but a place to live). For many of us, homelessness has been a major roadblock towards our recovery.
