    Teen Seeking Help after Sexual Assault

    I've just become a victim of rape. I desperately need help and don't know where to find it - what should I do now? So far, I haven't told my parents, and no one else knows.

Tom and Dena Yohe

View Bio

Tom and Dena Yohe (pronounced "Yoy") are the co-founders of Hope for Hurting Parents, a ministry dedicated to helping parents who are grieving over the destructive choices of their teen and adult children. The Yohes' ability to bring advice and encouragement to parents is born out of the dark times they experienced with their formerly troubled daughter, Renee, who suffered from addiction, depression, self-injury and suicidal thoughts. Renee has recovered and is now enjoying a successful career as a singer-songwriter and jewelry designer. Her story is the genesis of a global non-profit movement called To Write Love on Her Arms and a movie by the same name. Tom is a former pastor and Dena a former social worker, and both have served on the staff of Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ). Dena is author of the book You Are Not Alone: Hope for Hurting Parents of Troubled Kids. Tom and Dena reside in Florida and have three grown children.
