About

Lilada's Livingroom—a safe place to heal—inspires survivors of sexual abuse to reclaim their spirits, minds and bodies!

OUR STORY

Lilada Gee was 6 years old the first time an adult family member sexually abused her. Throughout the ensuing years, she struggled with issues related to the abuse; including clinical depression, post-traumatic stress and low self-esteem. Now, as an adult, she is committed to helping girls and women who are victims of child sexual abuse, heal. Lilada’s Livingroom began in the living room of Lilada’s home, after she publically shared her tumultuous journey of healing from childhood sexual abuse. Girls and women who were in the audience started showing up at her home, in her living room to find a safe place to heal. Since that time, Lilada has traveled from coast-to-coast and abroad, creating safe places for women and girls to rid themselves of the shame, secrets and stigmatism of abuse.

Lilada's Livingroom creates a safe place for female survivors of sexual abuse to step from behind the veil of shadows, secrets and shame; opening a healing pathway to renewal, recovery and restoration, not only for ourselves, but for those that follow behind us. We specialize in providing Afro-centric services to Black girl and women survivors and teen mothers, as well as providing culturally diverse services to women of color advocates and survivors.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Lilada’s Livingroom is to create safe environments for women and girls to heal from the wounds of sexual abuse.

Our desire is for every child to be safe at home, their places of worship and their communities. We work toward that vision by providing healing services to female survivors of sexual abuse. In addition, we offer supportive services to parents and others who are affected by sexual violence and professional training and consultation to support businesses, schools, faith communities and community organizations to build capacity to prevent abuse and foster healing journeys for survivors, young and old. A special emphasis is placed on providing culturally affirming services to traditionally underserved populations.
