I kind of reached a turning point a little while ago and decided that the lack of local support for male survivors of sexual abuse really was no longer acceptable to me. I have really explored all local sources of support and they all fall short of satisfactory. Not being able to travel pretty much limits me to the local scene. So I decided to break out of my fear of community and start looking for ways for the provincial support organization for male survivors in British Columbia (http://bc-malesurvivors.com/) to have their services provided here. They told me that they've been wanting to create a branch office where I live for a while now. Funding is the limiting factor. So I've started searching for funds and partner organizations and am making some good progress. It's certainly freeing me of my fear of family and empowering me to create my own (and much healthier) reality than the one that is readily available locally (or was ever available in my family of birth).
If any of you know of promising leads to follow to fund a healing program for male survivors in south central British Columbia Canada, please let me know.
