We work towards transforming trauma to triumph, and struggles to strengths, and building the skillset between the two.
"Trauma impacts everything from childhood development to how you interact with the world. We focus on finding ways to minimize ongoing trauma that hinders healing"
- Erin Farrell, Executive Director, Struggles to Strengths
These experiences are all known as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and are examples of trauma. We implement Trauma Informed Care to address these experiences and minimize impact.
- Impair cognitive, emotional, social, and physiological development.
- Increase potential of risky behavior
- Negatively impact health and wellness
- Increase the likelihood of development of disease, mental illness, and disability
Who we serve
We serve vulnerable and exposed families recovering from long term and reoccurring trauma. Most all of our families have experienced homelessness and are in shelter programs. 100 percent of our families reside 125 percent or more below the poverty line.
What we do
Our programming is composed of several different components. With an emphasis on mentorship and positive relationships, we combine healing centered engagement and trauma informed care to create opportunities of inclusion and empowerment.
We run on donations in all forms - donated financial resources, donated resources, and donated time. Our organization is volunteer based, and all donations benefit our families directly.
You can also make your amazon purchases through our Amazon Smile affiliation and any proceeds will be donated to us.
