At the Hope & Healing, we understand that navigating through community resources may be difficult and overwhelming, especially after experiencing a trauma. Sexual violence and intimate partner violence can affect many aspects of someone’s life and there are many organizations in the community that can provide additional support to survivors and their loved ones during the healing process, we offer advocacy in helping survivors navigate through the community resources.
While we have much experience in helping survivors of these crimes on their path to healing we refer to other agencies who have expertise in many other fields. Below is a list of some very common referrals that we give at Hope & Healing.
