Help and Healing for Survivors

California Men’s Colony (CMC) Catholic Chaplain John Farao sponsors a new kind of self-help group for abuse survivors. The group offers another mental health and rehabilitation resource for the incarcerated population who survived abuse as children.

For several months, Farao has sponsored a group for survivors who choose to expose the darkest moments of their youth. For incarcerated survivors of childhood sexual abuse, this group allows them to meet, share and learn. One of their lessons is how this childhood trauma has impacted their lives and emotional development. Read more about this effort

Thank you, Friar John for bringing the light of Jesus and his healing love to CMC. May God continue to bless and lead you.
