Our staff are certified facilitators of One Circle Foundation, which aims to transform through circles promoting resiliency and health relationships through gender relevant and culturally responsive models.
• Victim Services Department - We work to enhance the safety and well-being of individuals in crisis by providing safety for domestic violence, sexual assault & human trafficking victims/survivors.
