Our Mission

We believe, respect, and support survivors, whether they are seeking safety, healing, or justice. We recognize the uniqueness and wholeness of each person and we support all movements that empower marginalized groups knowing that this includes survivors as well. As a program, we endeavor to cultivate empathy and foster a culture of caring for one another.
