About Us

Robert L. Robar & Susanna Shutz Robar

God's Call

It was in 1998 that Susanna began what was to become

the hallmark of her life: to extend the healing hand

of Jesus Christ to others who have also been

traumatized by sexual violence.

Wanting to assist those seeking help and healing from sexual trauma, and to give back to her community, Susanna applied in a volunteer capacity at a

local rape crisis center. She felt a stirring begin deep

within her heart; she knew she needed to do

more than her initial volunteer offer.

Susanna completed the necessary program hours in

order to become a Certified Rape Crisis Advocate for the State of California. She then enrolled in the Project

Date Program at the crisis center, becoming a public speaker within the local Christian

community and for other interested groups.

Continuing to follow the call of God on her life,

Susanna educates others regarding the role that we all hold: helping to create a safe haven for victims of

sexual violence, and protecting all children who

are within the immediate realm of our influence.

Susanna Robar Ministries is dedicated to the careful

dissemination of specific educational materials

regarding the issues of sexual violence, the common

effects created by sexual violence within our families

and our communities, and the solutions within our reach.

Through workshops, seminars and short-term courses,

RapeSpeaksOut! delivers instructive presentations that educate all groups - including parents, teachers, pastors and other child caregivers -

toward a common awareness that will:

discourage sexual violence,

encourage healing from sexual trauma,

and create safer communities

in which to live, work and play.


Susanna was born in Southern California in 1945.

After graduating from local schools and the University

of Redlands, she married Robert Lee Robar in 1967.

Robert, a retired Los Angeles City Fire

Captain II, and Susanna, a retired Spanish teacher,

have five children (two children are with the Lord);

three adult children and four grandchildren

  all reside in Tennessee and Southern California.
