Healing for All

We are learning more each day about the impact of trauma on human lives.
But with the right approach, we can offer hope and healing for those harmed by violence.
See more about our goals for healing in our Safer Tomorrows Road Map.

HEALING FOR KIDS

What does the future hold for kids
who have been traumatized by violence–witnessing their parent being hit, or experiencing bullying, sexual abuse, or dating violence themselves? Without intervention or support, they are much more likely than other kids to:

  • Abuse alcohol and drugs
  • Fail in school
  • Commit suicide or have lifelong health problems

This Year's Goal

At least 90% of children will improve their emotional well-being and use positive coping skills to enhance their resiliency

 

Our Answer: evidence-based therapy that is proven to work

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a child transform from being afraid or suicidal to hopeful and confident. We help kids to heal, and we teach them healthy coping and relationship skills that will impact the rest of their lives.

Youth completing our therapy program tell us they:

  • Improved their grades from D's and F's to A's and B's
  • Stayed away from alcohol and drugs
  • Ended their suicidal thoughts

Read about Kim’s story. Last year:

  • 179 kids ages 3 to 18 were provided therapy and support
  • 1 in 3 of those served suffered significant trauma
  • 98% of 152 youth surveyed over five years learned healthy coping skills and improved their mental health
