The Cult Information Service (CIS) is a tax-exempt, non-profit, educational, self-help organization. It is made up entirely of volunteers and dedicated to: (1) educating the public about the danger and harmful effects of mind control used by destructive cults; (2) providing support and referral to victims and those affected by destructive cults; and (3) providing information for professionals and people interested in researching destructive cults and cultic behavior. It is important to note that the Cult Information Service limits its concerns about destructive groups to unethical or illegal practices. It does not pass judgment on doctrine or beliefs.
CIS Scholarships for Former Cult Members
CIS offers a limited number of scholarships for former members of high-control groups who wish to attend ICSA workshops for SGAs (people born or raised in cultic groups). Please call (201-894-8515) or write William Goldberg, MSW, PsyA, if you are interested in applying for such financial assistance:
