What positive influence can you bring to The Streets Don't Love You Back Movement?
Hi, I am Ren and I am a Christian, wife, mother of three grown children and grandmother of ten (10) grandchildren.
I am also a survivor of severe child abuse, incest and rape from the time I was an infant until I was 15 years old.
I lived on the streets after the courts placed me in my sexual abuser's custody. I became a drug addict, alcoholic, self harmer and prostitute. And I was in and out of jails and hospitals. This went on until I as busted with drugs in 1994 and charged with several felonies.
At 26 I was facing prison and I volunteerily went into a drug rehab treatment center. I completed my treatment in 5 months. The judge decided to give me 3 yrs probation instead of prison which I completed in less than a year. I have been clean and sober for almost 20 yrs.
I have been involved with full time ministry for the past 16 years with my husband and 11 years as an volunteer advocate and radio host.
SAFE 101 Talk Radio (Sexual Abuse Family Education .S.A.F.E) was founded in 2010. It is a place for survivors of all abuse to share their stories on the air and be a voice for the abuse.
