Darla Gooden, an Evangelist, is the proud mother of six children who now resides in Houston, Texas.
She's an active worker in the community, particularly among the disadvantaged and underserved. Darla has been a timeless spokesperson for the rights and total development of our youth.
And there's a good reason ..
In September of 2006 Darla learned that two of her children had suffered their greatest attack. Countless years of innocence were lost at the hands of a pedophile – in her church.
She explains, "Two of my sons had been systematically abused over an extended period of time. With threats of violence to my life, they were rendered powerless to expose him."
Looking for places to turn for help and support, Darla found there is a great need for support ministries for this type of abuse. This led her to form 'Restorer of the Breach' Ministries," also known as 'ROB.'
The foundation aids in the recovery of youth and families who have been victimized by pedophilia. ROB provides referrals to sensitive therapists who facilitate the process of recovery with individual, family and group therapy sessions. With ground-breaking prevention seminars, workshops and lectures, ROB empowers parents, teachers, schools and church members.
As founder of 'The Restorer of the Breach Foundation,' Darla has spearheaded these efforts to aid in the recovery of youth and families victimized by pedophilia.
She's also authored a book about the abuse of her children and what happened to her family, 'The Restorer of the Breach; Finding Hope & Healing on the Edge of Despair.'
Darla explains, "My book tells the story and the impact these crimes have had on our life. The book also details the pathology of a pedophile and my family's recovery process."
