The event is free to attend and donations will be requested.  A challenge grant has been issued – a dollar for dollar match up to $75,000.

  • What is resiliency? How can it set the foundation for perseverance? What does resiliency look like, feel like, sound like?
  • What are the barriers to perseverance? How do we address them? How do we tend to our emotional, physical, spiritual, bodily, psychological needs?

We invite you to be apart of this conversation that aims to provide more information on building resiliency as a foundation for perseverance as it pertains to COVID-19 implications and the experience of relationship/domestic abuse.
