Hope, Healing & Support for men from all walks of life

Every man who has experienced sexual assault or sexual abuse deserves access to a judgment-free space where he can heal on his own terms and without shame. For 26 years, MaleSurvivor has fostered a healing community where tens of thousands of men from more than 200 countries come together to find support, information and — most importantly — hope.

MaleSurvivor is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, public benefit organization committed to preventing, healing, and eliminating all forms of sexual victimization of boys and men through support, treatment, research, education, advocacy, and activism.

Formed in 1995, MaleSurvivor has an international membership of over 15,000 registered members from over 200 countries in the world.  MaleSurvivor is primarily funded by member donations.

MaleSurvivor is dedicated to providing personalized support for men at every stage of the healing process. We facilitate dialogue among survivors, as well as between survivors and professional therapists, on our online support forums like a vibrant and moderated Support Forum, online 24/7 chat and at in-person events. We provide educational resources that help empower them to process their past and look forward to a brighter future. And we do everything in a way that recognizes and respects the diversity of survivors and their allies.

Because the damaging effects of sexual abuse transcend gender, race, religion, age, nationality, class and sexual orientation, our services are also designed to help survivors’ loved ones, the media and the general public better understand the men we serve — and better understand the actions we can all take to confront and fight the realities, and destroy the myths, of male sexual abuse.

An experienced Board of Directors and Advisory Board dedicated to empowering you

MaleSurvivor is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our board members and volunteers are passionate and dedicated to provide support and training across a wide range of disciplines to help ensure that all survivors of sexual violence have access to trained, compassionate and effective support.
