Our Healing Roots Program has been in operation since 2006. It offers survivors a safe space to access resources that promote healing and connection. Staff who work within this program share identities and lived experience with the participants they serve. Advocates understand how their unique history has shaped their community and shape their support accordingly.
- Individualized Advocacy: One-on-one support for survivors to create individual safety plans and begin their healing journey. Advocates help survivors access necessary resources.
- Support Groups: Culturally specific, topic-based support groups that explore domestic violence, healthy relationships, and healing from trauma. Safe space for Black and African American survivors to share and learn from one another.
- Family Support: Advocates provide one-on-one support to help survivors and their children learn, grow, and heal together. We also connect survivors with local resources to help them and their loved ones thrive.

Kinship Youth Support
Our Kinship Program was launched in September 2020 to address the impact of intergenerational trauma experienced by the children of our Healing Roots participants. We help kids strengthen community bonds through peer support groups, family field trips, and culturally specific mentorship opportunities.
