Survivors & Friends has an all volunteer staff. So, everyone that is on our staff has a true desire to help others who are dealing with the issues of sexual abuse.
annie started Survivors & Friends as a Quarterly newsletter. However, when printing costs exceeded what was being brought in, Survivors & Friends moved to the web where it was able to reach for more people at a more reasonable costs. annie originally created the S&F site herself. However, when updating the site became more difficult because of her health, she asked her son, Kevin, to re-create the site and develop programs that would help her keep the site updated.
