THE STORY:

Since 2009, Voices, Inc. has helped survivors of sexual and domestic violence find healing through creative art groups, trauma healing yoga, support and connection with other survivors, and other alternative healing paths. We have lead workshops and keynote presentations on trauma and healing, and have worked tirelessly to bring together the communities that surround survivors so that they feel better supported. Voices helps loved ones of survivors heal and better understand trauma. We help those in contact with victims such as police, medics, victim advocates, prosecutors and counselors to heal from vicarious (secondhand) trauma, and to come together to create a strong system for violence survivors.

For the past 5 years, we have done this work unpaid and operating our of donated space. We seek to raise money to seek our 501(c)3 non-profit status in order to receive grants, to fund our work, and to find a solid space in the area out of which to operate. We want survivors to know we exist and to be able to seek help when they need and want it! By finding a personal healing path, survivors are better able to reclaim their lives and move forward from their trauma.

Our founder knows firsthand the importance of healing. After being drugged, taken from a bar and raped in 2007, and after a long battle through the criminal justice system, she sought solace from connection with other survivors, yoga with a trauma specialist, and through creative art. It has been her greatest wish that others who have been wounded by trauma could have a comfortable, nurturing space in which to heal and grow. Please help us grow Voices, Inc. It could mean the world to so many.
