My name is Kierrin. I'm a survivor. I'm a 56-year-old woman, and have been suffering from all forms of sexual violence and assaults since I was 3 years old. I am finally free! SASS for Women in has been my lifeline! I have been with this organization of caring, loving and understanding powerful women, for just over a year. I have learned to understand myself better than I ever have before. I see red flags, I pay attention to my instincts, and I am starting to learn to love myself despite all of the horrific violence, sexual violence, that I have endured for years and years. Until I went to SASS, I felt like I had a Target painted on my forehead. I always drew narcissistic sociopathic partners. I am free again! I use this word free because I have been living a life of terror, fear, and shame. I have had no support from family and most friends do not understand what I have been through, and I'm continuing to go through. I now know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! During my trial, as I prosecuted my offender, my predator, SASS for women helped me through this trial by allowing me to be at their office and had counselors sitting with me, helping me, throughout probably the most difficult time I've ever experienced in my life. All I can say is that these women are wonderful. If you are like me and are looking to find some peace in your soul because of all of the horrible things that you have endured this is the place for you! Thank you, SASS for everything you have done for me. The depth of my respect is unfathomable. Thank you.
When I first moved to Cornwall , and throughout my stay there, SASS was my safest and main resort where I had a lot of Warmth, Support, Compassion and a lot of Fun... like literally fun dancing, eating, painting and also chatting with the best and most honest people I have ever met in my life . I don't know what I would do without being referred to Sass, I can say I literally felt LOVED and HEARD for the first time after too long. I just love and miss this place, my favourite!!!
I have gone to SASS twice in my life for about a year or so at both intervals. It was always about the child sexual abuse that I had gone through. I am 59 years old now and periodically throughout my life I get triggered somehow and again go through all that turmoil. SASS has helped to keep my alive and helped get through some really rough spots in my life. They have empowered me and validated my feelings. I am grateful to them and it is comforting to know that I can always go back.
