Healing for Abuse Victims Fund

$3,210 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 39 months
In recent months, the news of sexual abuse by Brandon Milburn has become quite public. While the perpetrator is behind bars, the victims are suffering in a silent prison of their own. After years of secrecy, many have taken the brave step of confronting their past. Your donations will help fund counseling for these individuals, many of whom lack the support and resources needed to make continued healing a reality. Together we can provide healing and hope for those who were victimized.

Counseling fees will be paid directly to provider of service.

Christy Horton and Mona Pyatt (and many others who care)

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your donations. We appreciate each and every one of you who are standing up for victims of abuse. With your support, we are able to get victims the healing they need.

A group of us have listed the stipulations for this fund and they are as follows:

Counseling Fund: provides fund for victims of Brandon Milburn to seek counseling, many of whom lack the support and resources needed to make continued healing a reality.

Christina Horton and Mona Pyatt are custodians of funds. Bank account is set up at First Community Credit Union in their names.

•Victims are allowed to choose provider. Provider must be currently licensed. Custodians will pay provider directly. Custodians of fund will recommend a provider to victim if necessary.

•Funds will be provided as victims step forward. The majority will be identified by Dawn Varvil or others who were involved in the youth ministry of First Christian Church of Florissant at the time.

•There is not any current time limit for a victim to come forward and to utilize the funds. If at any point, it is determined to close the counseling account, the remaining funds will be donated to GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) and/or SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests). Both organizations are registered non-for-profit 501C(3) corporations.

Continue to pray for the healing of these young victims. Once again, we appreciate your support.
