Statement of Need
There is no doubt that violence in its many forms has a profound and lasting impact upon us all. Those who have personally experienced violence in our homes, workplace or community, or simply known others who have suffered from its' effects know that it can take time to heal and move on with our lives. However, violence is preventable! Our goal is to help with prevention, assist in the healing process when it does occur and proactively help create the conditions for a safe, healthy and sustainable community through education and providing the vital skills of peacebuilding.
By providing and promoting the best practices and principles, Our Vision is to create a community model that touches the lives of every individual by planting the vital seeds of change and peace. Through education, empowerment and innovative approaches to building healthy relationships, we see our children, parents, teachers, police and every community member know and use the skills of peacebuilding to address issues of conflict, misunderstandings and violence. We see our community thriving in all aspects of healthy living.
