Frasier was recently highlighted in the Vail Daily to help River Bridge spread the word about the work we do and our upcoming Marilyn Van Derbur event. If you missed the article in the paper check it out online by visiting our blog, River Bridge Voices: Let the Words Fall Out.  Don't forget to purchase your tickets today!  

Together we can make a positive difference in the lives of children in our community. At River Bridge Regional Center we see children and teenagers who have experienced abuse regain their strength and rebuild their lives.  These children define bravery and they inspire our work with their resiliency. With support and the right tools, each of these children can move forward and begin to live the life that they deserve.

River Bridge is excited to bring Marilyn Van Derbur to Colorado!  In this event, Marilyn Van Derbur, a former Miss America, tells the story of how she was sexually violated by her prominent, millionaire father from age 5 to age 18. She was 53 years old before she was able to speak the words in public, “I am an incest survivor.”

She has opened the door for tens of thousands of sexual abuse survivors to also speak the words, many for the first time, within their own families and communities.

This inspirational and dynamic event can bring hope to survivors as they hear what Marilyn lived through and how she has healed over time.
