The Beautiful Strength Project uses a holistic approach to health and wellness education for women who have experienced trauma and crisis.
The goals are to:
1. Enhance self-efficacy and strength
2. Increase resilience & confidence
3. Aid in the development of empowerment skills
4. Provide social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and interpersonal support to participants of The Beautiful Strength Project
We are partnered with CASDA, Safe Haven, Harbor House, AICHO, and First Witness. Currently the group runs through Zoom for 1.5 hours one day a week and is attended by participants from partner agencies along with advocates from those agencies when possible.
We recently became a 501c3 non-profit organization in MN! In the last few months we have formed our board of directors which has been assisting us with the process of forming bylaws and other first steps in forming our new company. We are currently working on building our website, outreach, and networking.
Our vision is to grow and expand our reach to women in the Twin Ports as well as youth. The impact of our group comes not only from direct interaction with the women on a weekly basis, but also knowing that through empowerment and building a foundation of self-love that cycles of abuse and violence will be broken for the participants, their children and future generations.
This project enhances community based (non-clinical) services that strengthen community and empower women who are actively seeking to heal from trauma, live healthier lives and break cycles of violence for themselves and future generations.
We 100% believe in the impact this type of work can have in the lives of women. It is said, when we continue to open our hearts, we aren’t only doing our own work, but we are healing 7 generations before and 7 generations after us.
