A Message from our CEO
Since March the National Sexual Assault Hotline has reported an uptick in, their received calls. According to their findings 50% of their received calls were from minors; 67% of the minor callers reported their perpetrator was a family member; and 79% of the minor callers reported living in the home with their perpetrator.
I Am Beautiful Because it is a woman’s awareness nonprofit organization that supports women and girls who have been victims of child sexual abuse (CSA). Our mission is to educate, empower, and engage female survivors and to bring awareness to the public on the issues of child sexual abuse. Since the launching of our organization, in December 2017, we’ve held several community initiatives that have assisted women and girls in combating their post traumatic response issues related to child sexual abuse.
As I Am Beautiful Because continues to grow our goal is to launch a woman’s wellness center that provides post-traumatic response services to victims of child sexual abuse and their family members. This has been a goal from the beginning, however as a nonprofit organization we have struggled to gain financial backing to support the needs of this type of community programming.
As shelter-in-place orders are in place across the country, due to COVID-19, children continue to suffer from unreported abuse in their homes. I Am Beautiful Because is committed to saving the lives of these children by providing response programs such as Operation Beauty. Operation Beauty is a trauma informed care post-traumatic response program that will provide therapeutic supports to female survivors of child sexual abuse. Those supports include individual service planning, peer support groups, mental health resources, and more.
Donations to our organization will allow us to:
Launch a Child Sexual Abuse hotline across the DC, MD, and VA area
Hire expert level professionals such as Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Community Support Workers
Provide quality training for employees and services for participants
We know that many businesses and communities are suffering in these moments and we empathize with them. As we are strongly committed to saving the lives of children first and your support will allow us to graciously do so.
Trenell Eaton, Founder and CEO
I Am Beautiful Because... seeks to connect with local agencies and organizations that, holistically, support women and girls.
We believe that through community collaborations we can put an end to child sexual abuse by educating and empowering ALL women and girls with Beauty Bootcamps, and engaging survivors of CSA through restorative mentoring. Both opportunities creates a safe space for women and girls to disclose any abuse and to rebuild their self-confidence, self-worth, and self-awareness.
