Dreamcatchers Welcomes Mike Pistorino

Posted by Sandra On April - 12 - 2016

Dreamcatchers for Abused Children is proud to introduce Mike Pistorino to their Nonprofit Advisory Board. Our Advisory Board does not have any formal legal responsibilities. Rather, it is convened by the organization to effectively give advice and support and consists of volunteer child abuse advocates and mentors. A true Advisory Board is exactly that: advisory. It is distinct from the actual governing board of directors, and has no authority other than what is granted to it by the governing board. Its sole purpose is to provide critical feedback of our nonprofit’s activities and offer guidance concerning anything to do with our mission and advocacy work. Mr. Pistorino is a powerhouse in the child abuse field and we are honored to have this partnership with him!!

Mike Pistorino
Survivor, Public Speaker, Activist against Child Sexual Abuse



Mike Pistorino is a thriving survivor of childhood sexual abuse who is using his voice to empower survivors everywhere and stop sexual violence.  Growing up in the Bronx, Mike was neglected by family as a young boy and taken in by a neighbor, who raped him repeatedly for years.  Trapped by the abuse and the rage it created within him, Mike turned to drugs, which led him to homelessness, crime, jail, and eventually federal prison.  As an adult, he successfully completed rehab and was finally able to get help for the sexual abuse he had suffered as a child.

Today, Mike is the vice president of a multi-million dollar distribution business in Cleveland, Ohio, a marathoner, and married father of three.  He is an outspoken champion for survivors, an unapologetic activist for the prevention of child sexual abuse, and a prolific public speaker. Mike is a member of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network Speaker’s Bureau, and the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s Speaker’s Bureau.  Mike’s story has been featured as part of the Bristlecone Project through 1in6.org.  Mike serves on the board of directors of Reinventing the Cycle, a nonprofit organization in Cleveland dedicated to empowering children to recognize and stop sexual abuse.

With powerful, unparalleled honesty and enthusiasm, Mike shares his story with audiences nationally and internationally, inspiring all who hear him to be champions for change in their own lives and communities. Mike’s unforgettable message has helped organizations raise thousands of dollars, has inspired new policies regarding sexual abuse prevention, and has motivated countless survivors to seek help.

A powerful model of strength, courage, and resilience, Mike is dedicated to speaking out and sharing his story so that no other child suffers like he did.
