The Vashti Initiative a registered 501c3 non-profit that is currently funded completely by individual donors. Your contribution allows us to help survivors fleeing adverse religious environments as well as support those still transitioning and recovering from spiritual and religious abuse.
One of the best and quickest ways we can tangibly help those actively fleeing oppressive spiritual environments is through direct funds. The victim's fund is set to deliver small amounts of donations to survivors, mostly in the form of gift cards. This is meant to help victims secure basic needs such as food, clothing, temporary lodging, and other immediate needs. Our hope is that as our funding grows so will our ability to provide even more direct, financial assistance.
HELP US REACH THIS GOAL BY JANUARY 2023!
The needs are expansive and vary for those leaving and transitioning out of adverse religious and spiritually abusive environments. Most individuals will struggle the most with adjusting to the world around them. Many survivors admit feeling culturally and educationally challenged.
Having a mentor or advocate to help them navigate the outside can make all the difference. Our programs will provide educational and career aid along with a host of other resources and supports for those in transition and healing. Every dollar we make goes directly toward serving our community in one form or another.
Meeting basic living costs is often difficult for those early in transition from an abusive religious or spiritual environment. Many individuals express a need for items such as food, lodging, transportation, phones, or clothing. We offer small amounts of support through a low-barrier vetting process aimed at providing a quick and efficient response.
