ABOUT FAMILY HEALING
Our vision is a community that is free of domestic violence. We hope to provide innovative services to each member of the family unit – adults and children of all genders – to stop domestic violence as it occurs, and to prevent it from happening in the future.
Our current mission is to provide trauma-informed healing and restorative justice services to men who are perpetrators of domestic violence. We strive to accomplish this through prevention programming, therapeutic services, case management, advocacy, community education and awareness, and community partnerships.
Our goal is to permanently end the intergenerational cycle of violence by engaging with community partners to lead this societal shift and by providing family members the access to resources they need to eliminate domestic violence within their lives.
We Believe: In order to have communities that are free of domestic violence, we must lead the initiative toward personal changes in the attitudes and behavior of men who use violence. We must also help change the societal structures that support abusive behavior. To do so, we must work with families, communities, and institutions - leading the societal change needed to permanently eliminate domestic violence.
