After the Crisis: A Healing Retreat for Victims and Their Children

IWF funding to DVIP will provide a healing retreat for victims of domestic violence and their children. The retreat is designed to assist victims/survivors that have moved beyond immediate crises and are now independent of an abusive partner. This day long retreat will focus on long-term care response to trauma, wellness and self-care, developing long-term financial goals and repairing/enhancing the parent-child relationship. What makes this project unique is its focus beyond crisis intervention, criminal justice, and homelessness to the wholeness and well-being of individuals who have been affected.
