Empower Survivors to Reclaim What Abuse Took Away
Stronger began as grassroots movement that believes everyone deserves a life free from abuse.
Stronger is an accredited non-profit organization dedicated to empowering survivors of domestic abuse and gender based violence to reclaim what abuse took away.
Stronger programs train facilitators with unique tools designed to foster healing opportunities, equip professionals with training on trauma healing, and raise domestic violence awareness in communities.
What is Stronger?
The Stronger Healing Model equips leaders with unique tools to facilitate restorative small groups, incorporates art to transform trauma, and provides professional development and training on trauma healing.
STRONGER SMALL GROUPS
Survivors connect to begin healing in communities all over the world. Small groups are hosted in homes, churches, and corporations where survivors rally together to feel seen, to feel heard - journeying alongside one another and bearing witness to each other as we tell stories of strength and trauma, resilience and pain.
EQUIPPING LEADERS FOR IMPACT
Leaders in business, churches, and the community receive training in the Stronger philosophy and our recognized curriculum to facilitate restorative small groups.
Ongoing support and leader training is available through the Leader e-portal. Stronger also offers Leader Retreats and Community Sisterhood events.
