Brave Step is proud that we’re reaching people and radically improving lives. However, the need for Brave Step is ever great. It can take a survivor years, sometimes decades, before seeking help. We want the ability to serve every survivor who was willing to take a brave step toward us, as soon as they take that step.

We are grateful for your support and welcome gifts of any size. Please also consider a recurring monthly gift of $5, $10, $20 or more. Monthly giving strengthens Brave Step and helps lead us to sustainability.

  • A $5 gift each month gives a trauma survivor 12 minutes of specialized therapy with a compassionate, carefully-vetted therapist.
  • $10 a month fuels 10 minutes in group therapy where connection is made, a shift in understanding can be taken and a step towards freedom.
  • $20 a month fuels one of two “sisterhoods” we call Courageous Corner. Courageous Corner is a free peer-led support group for women to find understanding, love and hope.
  • $35 fuels a trauma-informed assessment to help a survivor build a road map on his/her healing journey.
  • $50 is one hour of bravery for a survivor needing group counseling, impacting six to eight people.

There are three easy ways to contribute monthly:

  • PayPal: Your gift will automatically be deducted each month.
  • Online bank bill pay. Simply set up Brave Step as a monthly gift.
  • Paper checks and good old U.S. Mail. Make a note on your calendar for a monthly “Brave contribution” and mail it to 970 Stafford Farm Road, Concord, N.C. 28025.

Please consider how your monthly extra change can change lives.

Shedding the Darkness

I was first molested by my uncle, whom I adored, when I was 12 yrs old. As it turns out, he had groomed me for those 12 years, making me feel as though I was the most special person in the world. He made me the apple of his eye, and I became ripe for his picking.
