Our Program

THE PROBLEM

No one is immune to the wrath of domestic violence, however,  research has shown that black women suffer more than caucasian, Hispanic, Asians, etc. According to the Institute of Women’s Policy Research’s Status of Black Women in the United States:

  • Black women are 60%  more to suffer from mental disorders, PTSD, etc

  • More than 40% of Black women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime, in comparison, 31.5% of all women experience the same. 

  • 53.8% of Black women had experienced psychological abuse, while 41.2% of Black women had experienced physical abuse. 

  • More disturbingly, Black women are 2.5 times more likely to be murdered by men than white women. 

  • Black women and girls have historically been dehumanized, considered unrapeable, and left without legal recourse. 

  • They are afraid to seek help because they are seen as apart of the problem. 

  • Their trust is limited in traditional therapies because they feel judged and chastised.

 

Experiencing trauma is never easy but dealing with the remnants after the fact can be worse. In order for anyone to heal their whole being must be impacted from a holistic perspective. The aim of this program is to be able to target the whole being in an inclusive, no judgment, nurturing environment. That will foster growth, creative thinking, stability, self-love most importantly healing.

Consciousness Raising Group

Consciousness-raising groups are used to help women discuss their feelings, needs, and desires. These include feelings perceived as private, taboo or shameful. The CR group sessions would be done once every week during the eight weeks session. A different topic can be selected each week, where each woman would join in on the discussion as it concerns her personal life. There is no limitation to the type of topics they can discuss.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

  • The discussions would be done in a circular setting because it is more neutral, and no one is perceived as the leader.

  • Each woman will have the opportunity to speak on the topic that is currently on the floor.

  • The aim is to make sure that the women can be themselves, transparent, and honest with what they are going through.​

  • To be able to learn from each other while getting the support needed.

  • The guidelines for the group are to make sure that there is a complete respect for all in all things.
