We love our community of partners, trainees and friends. See what they have to say about us:
“[It’s] so nice to have support groups that Include, not Exclude.”
"Safe, calm, healing space; applicable to a wide range of experiences with trauma, healing needs, and artistic interests."
"Peaceful, relaxing, approaching the shadows of trauma, then filling them with life!"
"I found out on Memorial Day that I will be homeless at the end of June. Reviewing the goody-bag today, with its simple things, left me feeling more alive, hopeful and in touch with myself than I have been in a week (survival mode/numbing). Thank you so much! I plan to use the art calendar to help me take care of myself while I’m uprooted."
“Anywhoooo, this Wednesday I received the notes cards from your workshop. They couldn’t have come at a more needed time. I’ve got them pinned up in my cubicle and they are helping me keep a harmonious smile on my face. Thank y’all for facilitating that. It was a powerful exercise and I deeply appreciate it.”
"Thank you so much for all of the work you do! I just participated in the “Serving Transgender Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence” webinar and it was great, so again and again, thank you."
RE: Serving Trans Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence: “I have been telling everyone in my work place about this webinar. It has been by far the best webinar I have listened to. I learned lots. Many thanks.”
“I have been soooo impressed with all of your materials and have been sending links to many of your webinars to my colleagues and partners on campus and inviting them to view them with me. It’s great to have these powerful resources so readily available. Thank you.”
“Thank you both so much for such an informative and important webinar! You were absolutely phenomenal presenters.”
“That was a phenomenal webinar! …Thank you so much [FORGE] for your informative, accessible, and valuable presentation.”
