Re: “Bay Area Authorities Need to Bring Celeste Guap Back to California — And Media Must Protect Her Privacy

I have been concerned about this young woman since finding out about her sexual assault which is too much for a girl or woman to go through. Our system has never been really set-up to work with girls and women in the Bay Area. There are few programs that work with the REASON women have PTSD, promiscuous behavior, run ins with the law because of money crimes and use of drugs and alcohol. Many women both professional, church going and those who never got a chance at life have been sexually assaulted as little girls. I am a survivor of sexual assault by 4 boys at the age of 7 and suffered for many years in silence. So there are few places a woman can go that are women only, to safely share and find healing in the Bay Area that provide treatment, housing, peer support and love. Working with my sisters in Oakland has been hard because of lack of proper resources. But we plunge on sacrificing personal gain with genuine concern for each woman who comes through the door. Millions of dollars go to programs for men. I have been informed so many times that women are far less in need and therefore they need far less resources. I am so sad that this young girl has and is enduring such pain, but hopefully she will be the catalyst for change in Oakland and the Bay Area. Send her to us to see if we can help her.
