HAVOCA Help for Adult Victims Of Childhood Abuse

HAVOCA was established in 2001 to provide support and direction to any adult who has experienced child abuse. This experience may be first hand, or as a loved one of a survivor, or as a support worker for the victims of child abuse. The HAVOCA resource provides a wealth of information online and at the same time allows people to connect through the HAVOCA Survivor Forums. In doing so HAVOCA provides direction and friendship to survivors worldwide.



Together, as a survivors’ community, HAVOCA provides the medium to break the silence and help individuals recover from their trauma.
