Our Healing Roots Program has been in operation since 2006. It offers survivors a safe space and access to resources that promote healing and connection. Our advocates understand how our unique history has shaped our 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/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 that help them and their loved ones to grow and thrive

Our Kinship Program was launched in September 2020 to address the impacts intergenerational trauma experienced by the children of our Healing Roots participants. We help kids to strengthen community bonds through peer support groups, family field trips, and culturally specific mentorship opportunities.
Healing Roots is supported by grants from the RWN Foundation, Collins Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, Spirit Mountain Community Fund, and Black United Fund of Oregon.
The Kinship Program is funded by a grant from the Family & Youth Services Bureau. It also receives support from the Nike Community Impact Fund, Pacific Power Foundation, and the Portlandia Club.
