In order to fulfill our mission — to empower victims and their families to heal after experiencing the trauma of violence and abuse — CT-ALIVE is developing several new projects that bolster and support our current Never Going Back to Abuse Project. If you would like to hasten the day when CT-ALIVE can launch them, please visit our DONATE page.
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!
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.
Women need resources and help to navigate challenging life transitions after leaving an abusive relationship, dealing with a sexual assault or other traumatic incident. These transitions could include divorce, career change, job loss, illness or retirement.
This collaboration project will further women’s ability to THRIVE after abuse and help them manifest a life of power and purpose by providing them with financial literacy skills, small business development information, access to medical and legal service and mentoring.
