Change doesn't happen alone.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on donors to help us continue to provide community programs to your underserved communities, particularly low income and marginalized youth, women, people of color, LGBTQ+ folks and assault survivors. Please support our cause! 


Our 2022 fundraiser theme is “Worth Defending.” All of our teaching and training begins with this simple concept: that each of us is worth the effort it takes to protect ourselves and our community. Through setting firm boundaries, asserting our needs, and prioritizing recovery, we become mentally and physically stronger and better able to fight for what matters to us. When we believe we are worth defending, our minds, bodies, and voices become powerful tools of protection. What in your life is #worthdefending? What would you stand up for, without question, no matter what?
