Connect, Nurture, Transform, Rebuild
CNTR is on a mission to shift the direct-service paradigm from crisis management to community development, holistic services, and long term healing for survivors.
CNTR envisions a world where all survivors have access to long term, creative, and holistic healing services and networks – enabling them to live more fulfilling, healthier lives. Systems now aim to manage the crisis, and serve as a rotating door. Survivors lack the opportunity to heal, restore their peace, and move forward with their lives. CNTR believes that in order to address the cyclical nature of violence, the field must expand its focus to the broader picture.
Survivor led, survivor organized; CNTR strives towards this dream by curating healing arts retreats for survivors, with the opportunity to be led by survivors.
Healing does not happen alone. It requires community, support, and connection to heal from trauma. CNTR provides holistic healing services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and childhood sexual abuse with the goal of opening a full time retreat center in 2024.
