Removing help-seeking barriers for young people experiencing or witnessing verbal, emotional, physical and/or sexual violence.
Through individual advocacy, peer support groups, and text/chatline digital advocacy, we enhance healing, safety, self-esteem, social connectedness, stability, well-being, validation and support for young survivors.
Our free and confidential advocacy services address and respond to victimization and trauma from crimes including teen dating abuse, domestic violence, sexual violence, community violence, sex trafficking, stalking, gender-based violence and bullying.
Our team is responsive to the needs of young people by providing advocacy through chatline/text/Google Hangouts, ongoing opportunities to connect with peers, weekly open and closed support groups, drop in advocacy at Blooming Point, school and community-based sites, homework help, transportation, and basic needs support.
Our therapeutic advocacy and intervention services help to reduce depression, traumatic stress, fear, anxiety, problems adjusting to school or daily life, and other symptoms of distress associated with witnessing or experiencing violence.
