24-hour Crisis Helpline

Light Up the Lotus

You MADE life brighter for survivors by helping us raise $4,140 in 40 days!


Featured prominently in the Safe Connections logo, the lotus flower symbolizes purity and rebirth across many different cultures and religions. Lotus flowers are typically found in murky waters, growing from the mud and ultimately rising above the surface of the water as a beautiful bloom. This serves as a symbol for the work Safe Connections’ does to help survivors rebuild and reclaim their life after abuse.

Thank You to everyone who
helped us reach our goal!

The Story

Hey everyone, it’s Ashley, the girl from the video. I can’t believe it’s already been over a year since it was filmed. Since then, I’ve continued to grow and heal and am even working at an internship with an organization that counsels women who have suffered sexual and emotional abuse. My time at Safe Connections really inspired me to join the cause supporting and empowering sexual abuse survivors. If I could scream it from the rooftops I would. Safe Connections saved my life! I will never be able to put a price on the help they gave me, but I hope that maybe my story enthuses others to support Safe Connections so that other women will continue getting the help they need.
