Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Safer Tomorrows Road Map is unprecedented in its multi-faceted approach to end generational interpersonal violence by simultaneously addressing safety, healing and prevention/education. We work to foster health and wellbeing, to promote safety and survival, and to equip our community to engage in respectful relationships to end interpersonal violence in two generations.

1. Adults and youth will heal from trauma and other mental health disorders and prevent the debilitating impact of untreated trauma from being passed among generations.
2. Families will be safe and have what they need to stabilize their lives.
3. Children and adults will be equipped to engage in respectful relationships and create a society that no longer tolerates interpersonal violence.

Since embarking on our Safer Tomorrows Road Map (STR) in 2017, we have discovered that both new opportunities and long-term partnerships position us well to advance our vision. We believe these key opportunities and partnerships build upon the work we’ve started. We remain focused on creating neighborhoods with resilient individuals, strong families and thriving communities. Our original purpose remains paramount, and our mission is far from accomplished. Too many lives are still at stake.



We are expanding the STR’s core foundation of simultaneously addressing safety, healing and education/prevention by integrating other complimentary practices and relationships to include developmental assets (positive values, relationships, skills and experiences that help youth thrive); targeted services and outreach to address diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) (in both urban and rural communities); and fervent partnerships.

• Therapy and support for children and adults harmed by interpersonal violence and prevent the debilitating impact of untreated trauma from being passed among generations.
• We are identifying specific developmental assets designed to counteract the trauma associated with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in order to further support individuals’ healing and path toward stability.
• Crisis and legal services, transitional housing, career counseling, shelter, criminal justice advocacy, safe visits/exchanges, and intervention for adults using interpersonal violence.
• Raise community awareness and educate youth in public schools as well as professionals and adults in the community.
• Addressing the root causes of interpersonal violence to focus specifically on the needs of those who have caused harm, many of whom have experienced interpersonal violence themselves and have never healed, providing accountability therapy.
• Develop socially and culturally relevant outreach; enhancing internal staff recruitment, training and education; and creating service approaches that move us closer to eliminating disparities impacting individuals within diverse/underserved populations.
