The Healing Circle works to end the silence around the issue of domestic and sexual violence by promoting community strength, respect, and balance in relationships. The Healing Circle provides a wide array of services including safety planning, housing stabilization, crisis intervention, advocacy, ongoing support groups, and educational services. Additionally, we work with local programs to facilitate safety planning, provide transportation when needed, provide emergency hotel vouchers, and assure the practice of culturally relevant services in local shelters. We provide assistance with filling out and filing temporary restraining orders and child custody orders, and we also help with housing and benefits issues. Domestic violence support groups meet every Thursday evening (contact us for more information). These support groups are closed groups held off-site for confidentiality. Free childcare is available.
The Healing Circle works to reinforce the fact that domestic violence is not, nor ever has been, a traditional Native American value.
