The two priests involved in Road to Recovery are Fr. Robert M. Hoatson, its President/Founder, and Fr. Kenneth E. Lasch, who has been an advocate for survivors of abuse since 1985. Bob Hoatson is a survivor of sexual abuse while a member of the Christian Brothers and as a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Newark. He earned a doctor of philosophy degree from Fordham University in 1987. Ken Lasch is retired from the parish in Mendham, NJ where at least two dozen boys were sexually abused by a former pastor. Fr. Ken has continued his advocacy, unabated, for over twenty years. Both priests are available for assistance to survivors.
The mission of 1in6 is to help men who have had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood live healthier, happier lives. Our mission also includes serving family members, friends, and partners by providing information and support resources on the web and in the community.
