The RAINN Therapy Fund
In consultation with the Athena Project, Sonoma Academy has established a therapy fund. The fund will be administered by RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. It will assist alumni and former students who experienced sexual misconduct and related violence, as well as those who were indirectly affected by sexual misconduct, while at Sonoma Academy with costs related to therapy. The Athena Project encourages anyone who has been the victim of sexual misconduct, indirect harm related to sexual misconduct, or physical violence by a Sonoma Academy employee to submit a claim through RAINN.
You can learn more about the RAINN fund in our most recent post. You can also review the FAQ page on Sonoma Academy's Community Wellness page.
