Who we are
Bluebird’s Hope is a community-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering forensic nursing examinations to those who have suffered sexual assault, strangulation, domestic violence, and/or human trafficking. Founded in 2020, we have been working diligently to provide education and forensic exam services to communities across Texas, focusing on rural and underserved areas.
Sexual assault is an issue that affects millions of Americans every year. In fact, it is estimated that, on average, someone in the US is sexually assaulted every 68 seconds. This is especially true in Texas where 2 in 5 women and 1 in 5 men have been sexually assaulted. Victims of sexual assault frequently suffer from PTSD, are more likely to contemplate suicide, and are 6-10 times more likely to use hard drugs. Additionally, victims have the additional risks of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).1
Getting victims the help they need is the first step in recovery.
At Bluebird’s Hope, we offer comprehensive forensic medical exams for victims, 100% free of charge. As part of this service we also ensure victims have access to proper medical care for any injuries received, provide photographic and biological evidence collection if requested, and will help connect victims with trained counselors so they may begin the process of healing.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of one of these crimes, please get them the help they need today.
