Dear survivors of childhood trauma,
We see you. 
We hear you.
We stand with you.
We have been where you are.
We want to help you.
Love, successful survivors of childhood trauma.

Do you know what people who are being trafficked, who are homeless, and who are living in violent relationships have in common?

Please watch this video by Successful Survivors Foundation founder, Rhonda Sciortino, to learn the answer. More importantly, to learn what you can do about it.

Helping survivors of childhood trauma helps to stop the cycles of

  • poverty

  • homelessness

  • child abuse

  • domestic violence

  • human trafficking

  • depression

  • addiction

  • suicide

  • teen pregnancy

  • and more...

When we help survivors of trauma use their survival skills to create personal and professional success, we help our communities.

You can help survivors become successful survivors. Here's how



More than 2/3rds of youth report at least one

traumatic event by

16 years of age.*

 There are millions of survivors of rough

childhoods among us.

We're everywhere. 

The first step in healing is recognizing that we've survived hard things. We're still breathing! From there,

we can mine the lessons out ofd all we've been through, and use those things to create successful lives. That's how we stop

the generational cycles that harm children, families and communities.


Support Group


61% of adult women and nearly 40% of adult men report experiencing anxiety.*

Every one of us can encourage other survivors to become successful survivors by pointing out to them that they are strong, resilient and resourceful people. They have the character traits of successful survivors, which are precisely what they need to create successful lives!

Share our social media posts, blogs, books and free resources with the survivors in your life. Let them know that you believe in their ability to create their 

uniquely successful life.


Holding Hands Up High


Nearly 389,000 young adults aged 17-24 annually use community services for healing, crisis, and sustaining healthy change.* 

The beginning of becoming a successful survivor is the moment when someone else believes in us. When we know that someone is in our corner, we gain courage to reach out of our comfort zone to follow our dreams.

Each of us can empower others by recognizing the fact that they survived, listening to them, and genuinely caring enough to help them find supportive people and helpful community services.


Helping Hands


An estimated 1.7 million non-profits exist in the US.*

We believe in helping survivors help themselves

and others through our all- volunteer model of encouraging others to put their love into action. 


There is power and healing in healthy relationships with good people and in connection with resources from good non profit organizations that exist to help survivors. Vetted, effective, safe non profit programs can be found at LOVEISACTION.COM

Consider bringing them to your community.
