Scientific research into the best ways to provide early support to trauma survivors is ongoing. Experts currently believe that community and human resiliency best practices include early intervention to promote a sense of safety, connectedness and hope.
We’ve experienced the extraordinary benefits of this type of support ourselves. Ever since, we’ve been trying to “pay it forward” to anyone in need, anywhere in the world.
We began in 2015 by supporting survivors and families who lost loved ones in the 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In 2016, we traveled to Orlando to support the survivors of the Pulse nightclub shooting. We are now working with survivor groups across the United States, Canada, the Middle East, Europe, South America, Australia, and parts of Africa..
We are also actively forming relationships with trauma communities in countries worldwide to build a vibrant network of local survivor mentors.
