What We Do

Safe Passage Foundation (SPF) is devoted to providing resources, support and advocacy addressing both the immediate and long-term needs of former and current children raised in cults while raising public awareness of the issues confronting them.


The Julia McNeil Memorial Scholarship program provides college scholarships to those who were raised in cults that denied education or routinely violated the basic human rights of children.

SPF Scholarships Donate


Safe Passage Foundation volunteers have attended and made presentations at various conferences including ICSA and SNAP. As part of our work to raise awareness, we also sometimes participate in media interviews and provide presentations and timely advice to government departments, NGOs, social services and educational institutions.

Financial Aid

The Emergency Aid Fund provides emergency assistance to persons raised in cults (available financial aid is limited but please contact us if you have an urgent need and we will do what we can to help).
