A Conversation with Faith Jones
In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, CCCNH is thrilled to virtually host an intimate evening with author Faith Jones as she discusses her memoir "Sex Cult Nun". Learn her heroic story of overcoming sexual abuse, and how she learned to heal.
"Sex Cult Nun: Breaking Away from the Children of God, a Wild, Radical Religious Cult" is Faith Jones' memoir of growing up in and breaking free from the Children of God, an oppressive, extremist religious cult. Faith is the granddaughter of the cult leader, David Berg. Faith shares how she was raised in the cult from infancy until managing to leave it in her early 20s.

Kids Are Our Business Breakfast
HAVEN invites all members of the community to the 11th Annual Kids Are Our Business Breakfast on Friday, April 22nd, 2022, from 8:30 am-10:00 am at Portsmouth Country Club in Greenland, NH. This popular breakfast event brings the community together to learn about the research-based violence prevention education programming offered by HAVEN.
HAVEN’s Safe Kids Strong Teens K-12 Prevention Education programs help to keep kids safe from sexual and domestic abuse, sexual harassment, and teen dating violence. While the focus of our programming is preventing violence, promoting body autonomy, and priming consent, we know that some of the children we see have already been victimized. Our programs encourage children to talk to a grown-up they trust.
Visit the event page at: HAVENNH.org or contact Haley Ferland at (603) 436-4107 or Haley@havennh.org to register to attend.

During #SAAM in April, advocates at New Beginnings will partner with local businesses to host outreach activities to spread information about our services and raise awareness.
Additionally, with the assistance of our Teen Leadership Council, we will be participating in the 30-Day Challenge to show solidarity with survivors and educate our followers about sexual violence.
We will also host our monthly social justice book discussion on the subject of sexual violence as told by survivors, and discuss ways we can better serve survivors.
Finally, at the end of the month, we will invite our social media followers to participate in a "Virtual At-Home Screening" with a variety of documentaries about sexual violence.
Please contact Sara at email@example.com if you are interested in participating in our book discussion or virtual film screening.
