Supporting survivors of clergy sex abuse to bring hope for healing, justice, life, and joy.


The TentMakers Of Louisiana

The TentMakers of Louisiana, LLC (TTML) is a verified non-profit to support survivors of clergy sex in the Catholic Church to bring hope for healing, justice, life, and joy. The TentMakers of Louisiana seeks to educate the public and victims about clergy sex abuse and to support victims as they navigate the criminal justice system, the civil legal system, and receive counseling to address the trauma associated with clergy sex abuse.

HEALING FROM THE TRAUMA OF CLERGY SEX ABUSE

The TentMakers understand the effects of trauma and the difficulties associated with unresolved clergy sex abuse trauma. The TentMakers offer assistance to those who have not received counseling so they can find a path to healing and gain a sense of hope and joy.

JUSTICE

Reporting sex abuse is intimidating especially to those who are not familiar with how the criminal justice system works. The TentMakers offers steps and information on how to report clergy sex abuse to the police as well as information on the civil legal system. Sometimes justice is not found in the criminal system but can be found in the civil legal system.
