New Website Launched! (April 28, 2009)

Pandora's Project launched this new website in April of 2009. This new home to Pandora's Project and Pandora's Aquarium improves accessibility, readability, and incorporates years of new content.

We hope anyone who has been a victim of sexual violence will find comfort in knowing they are not alone, and are encouraged to reach out through our online support group, message board, and chat room for rape and sexual abuse survivors. We also hope friends, family, and partners of survivors will find information and resources to support the survivor in their life.

With the new website, we also started an e-newsletter mailing list. Sign up and learn more here: Newsletters & Mailing List.

Special thanks to Jason Ervin for volunteering to assist us with this new site. He is a wonderful web designer who aims to understand and realize his client's vision. You can contact him through his website.
