What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is an ongoing lack of awareness of what trauma really means. Society says, "That didn't happen to me, but I have a friend...." Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs shows us that there are certain needs that are important in order for us to take a new step. There are many individuals with and without very important needs. Some individuals have basic needs met, feel completely alone, and wonder why they are struggling getting by when social needs need to be filled and then tell themselves, "My struggle isn't as bad as theirs." Every single human in the world has had trauma due to the pandemic. It is a worldwide trauma. This leads to impacting our physical health because of the ACE Study that shows a direct correlation to trauma and physical health. Hope, resilience, and connection are all powerful and important needs that reduce the impact of trauma. Robin's Hope created that safe space to see the possibility of hope, healing, and recovery.
