What Is Anderson House TRC? 

The purpose of Anderson House is to create awareness regarding the emotional harm caused by Sexually Related Trauma (SRT) and to provide a path to healing for those affected. 

Our vision is that any individual who has experienced Sexually Related Trauma (SRT) and desires healing will be aware of and have access to the free healing programs offered by Anderson House.

is Anderson House TRC a religious organization?


No (and Yes). Anderson House is not an overtly religious organization and operates unaffiliated and independently from any organized religion, denomination or faith. Anyone, regardless of their faith or their lack of faith, who has experienced sexual related trauma is welcome to our gender specific programs. However, a part of the 8-week program involves discussion of God, faith and forgiveness. Thousands of people have found healing through faith, and SRT Services would be remiss in our responsibility if we failed to include God and faith in our curriculum. We believe that acknowledging these concepts is necessary to complete the healing and recovery process.

what we do

Anderson House offers free in-person and online healing groups to men and women in Uvalde, Carrizo Springs and the surrounding areas of South Texas who have experienced sexually related trauma (SRT) which includes sexual abuse/sexual assault (including date rape), past abortion, miscarriage/stillbirth, or sexually transmitted diseases (STD/STI).
 
Sexually related traumas often leads to feelings of anger, depression, guilt, shame, sadness, grief, fear, anxiety, dirtiness and regret. These feelings can turn into addictions to things such as drugs, alcohol, food, sex, pornography or gambling or lead to other symptoms such as eating and sleeping disorders or and unhealthy obsession to work or sports.
 
In addition to our healing, support and recovery groups, Anderson House also offers pregnancy help, pregnancy related services and information dealing with unwanted pregnancy options
such as abortion and adoption services. Other pregnancy services include: free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, infant care services (diapers, formula, car seats, etc.) and parenting classes.
