Survivor Driven Programs

The Chinese proverb still holds true… Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Survivors of domestic and family violence are ordinary people, coming from regular jobs and families, capable of caring for themselves given the RIGHT tools. Giving a survivor a chance to regain control of their own life is the single most important gift anyone can give to this cause and to this movement.

Survive2Thrive wishes to remind victims of their own power and then to aid them in rebuilding their own lives, moving them from the day to day “survival” mindset to “thriving” in their new community of love and support.

Survive2Thrive has a board comprised completely of survivors. This ensures the programming will meet the needs of survivors because the programming was created and developed by survivors.

Survivors will be connected and given customized access to a robust repository of resources through partners in the following areas:

  • Legal Resources
  • Employment Resources
  • Financial Success Training
  • Healthcare Resources
  • Incentive Programs
  • Education and Training Resources
  • Childcare Resources
  • Strategic Exit Planning
