Daughters of Lot
Daughters of Lot is a subsidy program that ensures abuse victims will receive counseling regardless of their financial ability to pay. Samaritan Counseling and Growth Center sets aside the money raised at the Daughters of Lot fundraiser to provide counseling services to victims of abuse in Northeastern Oklahoma and Southeastern Kansas.
In 2016, Samaritan provided 172 sessions to 17 DOL clients that totaled $15,525 in fee assistance, which was made possible through donations.
I was honored to share my story at the annual fundraiser for the Samaritan Center's Daughters of Lot program. The community of Bartlesville is setting a great example of how to raise both awareness of sexual abuse and funds to help survivors cope with their trauma.
