Our community department offers a range of programming and services tailored for survivors of domestic violence and/or human trafficking. Our purpose revolves around assisting survivors in reclaiming their power throughout their journey, supporting them with the necessary resources to achieve success in various facets of their life. Domestic violence is seen as a societal taboo subject which often exacerbates the challenges faced by survivors, leading to stigmatization, and hindering their efforts to seek assistance and safety.
One of the services that we offer is our Personal Empowerment Program (PEP). PEP is a 10-week psychoeducational program that dives into a diverse range of topics directly relevant to the experiences of survivors. Topics include discussions about healthy relationships, red flags, and adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and the role that plays in our adulthood. The primary objective of this program is to equip individuals with strategies, tools, and knowledge essential for personal growth and self-actualization. By addressing key aspects of their journey and providing them with the requisite skills, we aim to strengthen the resolve of survivors to navigate their lives with resilience and determination.
Additionally, our services include Triple P, a specialized program focused on positive parenting. For survivors, this program offers valuable insight and guidance to enhance their parenting skills. Many of the adverse childhood experiences that affect our intimate relationships can also influence the way we parent. Through Triple P, survivors can learn strategies to build a stronger bond with their children while utilizing their own personal experiences to reflect on what works. The program targets children’s misbehavior and turns those instances of misconduct into positive teaching moments, both for the parent and child. Parents also get an insight on potential “traps” we set for ourselves that can contribute to the maintenance of those misbehaviors. The goal of the program is to create a positive outlook for both parents and children, equipping them with the skills necessary to be confident and competent in their role.
Our community programs diligently strive to create a nurturing and trauma-informed environment where survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking can find the necessary support, guidance, and tools to create live free from violence and harm. Through our tailored programs like PEP and Triple P, we aspire to aid them in their pursuit of a radiant and promising future.
