We know you can’t put a timeline on healing, but we strive to help our survivors in their recovery with multiple levels of care through a detailed and repeatable process that we’ve found has proven very successful.
First 24-48 Hours: Application and Screening
During this period, we review the survivor’s application to ensure moving forward in our process is their best next step. We take the time to understand each victim’s unique needs so we can establish a plan most beneficial to them.
In some cases, that means referring them to one of our partnering organizations more equipped to address their needs.
First Two Weeks: Assessment and Initial Needs Analysis
We know this is a critical time and we have to act fast. During this time, we establish emergency housing to help keep them sheltered, assign them a case manager so they know they have someone in their corner, create a safety plan to give them confidence moving forward, let them listen to other survivor stories so they have assurance, and set up emergency referrals as needed.
Weeks Two to Four: Stabilization
This can be a confusing and scary season for survivors, they second-guess their choices and doubt their future. During this time, their case manager works diligently with them to establish their new life and find comfort in their freedom through survivor mentoring and coaching.
Week Five and on: Long-term Mentoring
We know huge life changes can’t just happen in a month. After the first four weeks, we stay committed to our survivors. By establishing a personal plan with them that describes their goals and hopes for the future, we know the things they need to achieve and can support them to make each one happen.
Each survivor will continue to work with their case manager and a long-term mentor to help with transitional housing and provide referrals for employment, childcare and other needs.
Empower Toward Healing
We offer a healthy community full of caring coaches that have been trained to help with these unique needs, teaching and often re-teaching life skills that can help these survivors obtain jobs, making them self-sufficient and empowered to break the bondage they’ve been held by for so long.
