When a survivor goes to the hospital to have a forensic exam by a  SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner), often called a "rape kit," and law enforcement is involved, many times their belongings are seized as evidence. They are left with nothing to wear home from the hospital.

A Beloved Bundle includes: clothing, undergarments, hygiene products and other necessary items so that the survivor can leave with dignity and know that someone cares.

Project Beloved is partnering with The Women's Center of Tarrant County and rape crisis centers in Texas and beyond by providing Beloved Bundles which their advocates can make available to survivors of rape and sexual assault.

Emerging as a restorative project following the tragic and senseless death of Molly Jane Matheson, Beloved Bundles offer a critical first step in returning a sense of dignity and respect to sexual assault survivors, allowing the healing process to begin.
