Maria Goretti Network

People suffer from abuse in many forms. Have you or someone you love been abused? We were, and we are finding healing through Christ’s love and the Maria Goretti Network.

The Maria Goretti Network is a national, non-profit that reaches out to individuals who have been abused, their families, and those who support their recovery. Local Chapters of the Maria Goretti Network provide peer support through regular meetings and prayer in which survivors help each other journey toward recovery through the love of Jesus Christ witnessed in the life of Maria Goretti. Meetings are open to all regardless of religious or non-religious affiliation.
