BC Residential Historical Abuse Program

BC Residential Historical Abuse Program (RHAP) can provide funding for therapy, for a limited time, for any person who was sexually abused while under the age of 19 and living in a foster home, group home or any residential program/treatment agency operated or funded by the Province of British Columbia.

Sexual abuse survivors applying for RHAP do not have to file a police report, although there is a legal obligation to report abuse to authorities when children are currently at risk, or are currently being sexually abused.

The RHAP program is administered by the regional Health Authority where you are currently living.  Application forms are available at the Society’s Vancouver office.
