Survivors of Abuse Recovering provides community-based peer counselling for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse in West Hants, Kings & Annapolis Counties (Nova Scotia, Canada). We welcome all genders. We train peer counsellors and also provide workshops for the public to raise awareness of these issues.
Watch our videos where S.O.A.R. members describe how S.O.A.R. started, what it does, and how peer counselling helps survivors heal and grow.
