OUR APPROACH

Trauma-Informed Care

A woman's experience of trauma impacts every area of functioning, including physical, mental, behavioral, and social. Whether addressing addiction, prostotution, or other issues, trauma-based solutions must be at the heart of all of our practices. 

Woman & Doctor
Survivor-Led Solutions

Survivor-led practices ensure women can heal and recover at their own pace with the best possible care. Solutions created and implemented by other survivors are vital to ensuring that the programs we offer will truly meet the needs of our residents. 

Time and Space
