For Former & Doubting

FLDS Members

If your background is with the polygamous sect of the  Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there are people to help your unique set of needs and vulnerabilities. Some of the following organizations are secular and not religiously-affiliated. Others are run by religious groups and we have noted which. We applaud your courage to question and to leave.

Short Creek Dream Center* ~ Serving the people of Colorado City and Hildale, this Christian organization offers several programs to serve the needs of the FLDS community, including a residential program for young men and women to receive housing, mental and physical health care, and educational support.

*This is not a secular organization.

Holding Out HELP* ~ Another organization local to the Colorado-Arizona border helping those who have left a polygamous group like FLDS find housing, finish your education, and provide counseling and other assistance.

*This is not a secular organization. 

RAINN ~ The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network is America's largest anti-sexual violence organization. Many religions both condone and cover up sexual abuse. If you've been assaulted or you need help, call their hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE or chat. You can also find a local support group.

Domestic Shelters ~ Many religions condone domestic violence. You don't need to submit anymore. Find safety now for you and your children.
