SF Castro ASCA

Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse

Who We Are

ASCA is a community based self-help program for adult survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional childhood abuse. The meetings are loosely based on "Survivor to Thriver" Step Work Manual which can be downloaded free from the ASCA website or from our download center.

The purpose of our group meetings is to bring together within a nurturing and supportive environment, we who were abused as children to share our experiences, and resources. Our aim is to transform our identities from victims, to survivors, to thrivers.

Meetings are anonymous and only first names are used.

To support your participation in the meeting please review the following prior to attending your first meeting:
