 Why does faith matter?

The spiritual and religious beliefs and community can have a tremendous impact on a victim/survivor of abuse:

→ Religious communities, spiritual beliefs, sacred texts are sometimes the only things a victim/survivor has for care and support
→ Faith leaders are often "first responders" to the crisis of a victim/survivor
→ Faith communities are dedicated to living out the sacred calling of protecting the vulnerable, and holding abusers accountable for their actions
