Ark of Hope - CounterAttack #childabuse Online Mentoring @RemovingChains

Mentoring, coaching and counsel for abused and bullied children

"A counterattack is a tactic used in response against an attack. The general objective is to negate or thwart the advantage gained by the enemy in attack and the specific objectives are usually to regain lost ground... " Wikipedia
CounterAttack is an intuitive and proactive combination of Christian mentoring, coaching and counsel used by Ark of Hope for Children for victims of child abuse and bullying. It is an outgrowth of founder Blair Corbett's twenty years of online experience in reaching out with empathy and love to the battle weary lives of abuse victims. Since 1992 Blair has grown as a Survivor's Coach and, through Ark of Hope's local and online efforts they assist victims worldwide.

Ark of Hope for Children has found the Internet to be profoundly useful. By not seeing us face to face they feel more able to share their past in a safe way with dramatically lessened fear of guilt, shame and judgment. Pastor Blair has personally worked with dozens of victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, severe neglect, emotional abuse, ritual abuse and bullying.

Child abuse and even bullying victims have had extremely harsh and evil values forced upon them by their abusers. We intercede on their behalf with a knowledge that the evil intended to imprison and destroy them does not have to be a life sentence. Victims can become empowered survivors, filled with compassion and empathy IF AND WHEN intentional people stand in the gap instead of turning away.

Ark of Hope reaches victims at the point of their emotional need without judgment or discrimination of any kind. Modeling Christ-like behavior, our goal is for transformation and redirection of their scarred lives by "Breaking the chains of past abuse, leading them into lives filled with faith, hope and love".

Counter Attack has been sustained by Blair Corbett's undying desire not to turn his back on any child or teen in need. We have never charged the victims a fee as most are under some form of protection from the very relatives or caregivers who could have paid for such assistance. The need for Survivor's Coaches is growing exponentially with the far reach of the internet. If you feel led to bless us with a monthly or one time donation we will be eternally grateful.
