I: Sexual Abuse Awareness and Support
This division is a sexual abuse awareness
and support organization where we counsel
and support victims of sexual abuse
by helping them to become survivors
instead of remaining victims of sexual
If you were sexually abused at some
point in your life, whether it happened
recently or happened years ago, something
precious was taken from you. It has
affected your life drastically. Sometimes
you may feel insignificant and degraded,
never to be normal again. The abuse
haunts you, you can’t sleep, you
have nightmares, waking up and going
to sleep with the memory of the assault.
It affects your relationship with your
family and your friends.
Regardless of how long ago you were
abused, it still affects your life considerably.
Whether it’s sexually, emotionally
or spiritually; your life just can’t
seem to get back on the right track.
Friends and family just don’t
understand what you’re enduring.
For some, you try to act as if it doesn’t
bother you at all. You’re determined
that it won’t. Life will be the
same. You laugh, you play, and you go
to work and do your job as expected.
You go out, and even try to enjoy life.
You’ve moved on. But, it’s
still there, in the back of your mind
never completely going away, because
it won’t. You make every effort
not to acknowledge it. Will ignoring
the abuse be enough to make what has
happen to you seem as if it did not
happen at all?
If all this sounds familiar to you,
then you are invited to come and join
other survivors who share your experience
and understand your pain. The president
of this support Service S.NV.
Inc., Survivors Not Victims
is also a survivor of Childhood sexual
abuse. She knows first-hand and up-close
exactly what you’re going through
because she has been a victim as well.
She is now a survivor.
S.N.V., Inc., counselors facilitates
support groups every other Saturday
from 6pm-9pm. For more information please
give us a call. If you’re interested
in getting your life back, Please leave
a message and a contact number. Call
to see when our next support group meeting
II: Performing Arts and Mentoring Program
Our Performing Arts and Mentoring
Program, where we teach children preventative
and awareness measures of situations
they may find themselves in such as
sexual abuse, peer pressure, gang violence,
online predators and much more. We teach
them through the art of theatre where
they learn how to be aware, how to prevent,
how to recognize situations they face
on a daily basis. It is our goal to
empower our children through theatre
and art to be aware and know how to
respond to certain situations that could
endanger them. Although it’s learned
in a fun environment but the techniques
learned could eventually save their
III: After School and Summer Feeding
Through the USDA
and the State of Virginia S.N.V., Inc.
are sponsors that provides thousands
of meals a day for kids & teens,
free meals for the summer and after
school pm snacks. Cost is free and food
is nutritious. We realize that unfortunately
there are children that are in low to
moderate income families that receive
reduced or free lunches will only eat
during the school day and may not see
another meal until the following school
day. S.N.V. is a sponsor that provides
free meals to sites that offers an after
school program for children. We prepare,
and deliver food to these locations
and also provide the paper products
needed such as paper plates, utensils,
cups, aprons, trash bags etc…
that are needed in order to feed the
children. S.N.V. goes above and beyond
when it comes to feeding our children.
We do not do paper bag lunches. We provide
hot meals that stick to our children’s
stomach such as Franks & beans,
hotdog's, Spaghetti, Chicken & Tuna
Salad, Beef & Macaroni, Jambalaya,
Beef & Vegetables etc… We
still believe that it takes a village
to raise a child. Most of our sites
are located in Newport News, but we
have also serviced Hampton and Franklin,
VA, if you would like to know more information
about these sites for your children
to eat free nutritious food daily, please
