This project uses art, writing and other creative expression to help survivors of abuse heal, grow and change. With such expression, women and children are empowered emotionally and spiritually after abuse. Artistic images conveying hope, survival and strength can educate the public about the impact of abuse as well as showcase the courage it takes to move beyond abuse and thrive!

 Hchair massageealing Touch Project

Often women who have been abused find it difficult to be physically touched and providers of healing services are not attuned to the needs and strengths of these clients. With the use of healing touch, such as massage and intuitive energy work, women can find the health and healing they need to move forward with their lives. This project will introduce women to various techniques available and make them more accessible by covering some or all of the cost to receive these services from those trained as to the needs of women who have been abused.
