UnShame is not an attempt to replace crisis centers and victim services. Rather we want to reach the ones who have never called a rape crisis hotline. We aim to catch the attention of someone who may otherwise never set foot in a counseling office. We want to give victim/survivors-in-hiding the opportunity to acknowledge what happened to them and realize that life continues.

We hope that our website encourages you to use the resources that are available to you and to embrace those around you who want to help.
