Sarah Martin Gill was born and raised in The Family/Children of God cult. Since leaving the organization to start a new life, she has devoted much of her time to helping those who were raised in the same environment. Over the past decade, she has helped provide many former second generation members of The Family with peer-to-peer counseling, immediate crisis intervention, transitional housing and referrals to various professional services including legal counsel and mental health care. She has done most of this work on her own on an informal basis with virtually no resources or other support.
