Wheeling-Charleston Truth

Welcome to Wheeling-CharlestonTruth.org  
( Created by and for survivors of sexual abuse by clergy )

This site is all about the TRUTH... We try very hard to always update and post items on this web site, with complete integrity.

We realize it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and we thank you for visiting our site. We also realize this trauma reaches family members and those who are concerned and frustrated about the sex abuse crisis within the religious community.

This web site is a place to find information about our SNAP support meetings in the Wheeling-Charleston area, plus we are constantly updating news stories and information about clergy who have been publicly accused of sex abuse within the Wheeling-Charleston diocese.  Our goal is survivor support, public education, and protection of kids.

We also update survivor video stories. Sometimes it helps to listen to these stories to better understand the trauma and life pain of  those who have been harmed by clergy and those who are related to these survivors: family and friends.

We post on this site many links to other self help groups and information to support victims. SNAP leaders' email addresses and phone numbers are posted for you when you need direct help and support, please feel free to contact any of these compassionate people who care about survivors.  SNAP leaders know that the principle wish of every survivor is healing and the desire to see to it that their experiences never happen to another child, young person, or vulnerable adult.

You, who are survivors of sex abuse did NOT deserve this, did NOT ask for this to happen to you, and it was NOT your fault. There is healing when you are able to speak up and get this burden off your shoulders, and free from your heart. ... give it to the universe to carry for a while.... Just maybe, your life will be much more at peace.

Our ultimate goal is to open up the secrets, stop the silence, support those who have already been harmed, and thereby protect children.

Thank you for making the decision to visit our Wheeling-CharlestonTruth.org web site.
Judy Block Jones, SNAP Midwest Associate Director (636) 433-2511
