Your Strength To Heal is a 501(C)3 organization
Your Strength To Heal is dedicated to healing and preventing trauma, primarily through education, training, support, and valuable online information on trauma to survivors, mental health professionals, and the community-at-large.
SHORT TERM VISION
Your Strength To Heal will educate clinical professionals, as well as other professionals who interact with survivors such as the police, court and school systems. By way of presentations to these audiences, television shows, a website, internet social media, pamphlets, and a quarterly newsletter, Your Strength To Heal will facilitate the development of a trauma-informed community. As Helga Luest of Witness Justice states, “trauma-informed care isn’t about a ‘hand up,’ but rather working collaboratively and empowering the survivor in an environment where the provider and survivor have equal voice and choice”. YSTH presenters will be fully trained in trauma-informed care. The vision and plans for Your Strength To Heal are those of a survivor herself, Ms. Kim Kubal, Founder and Executive Director of this nonprofit. Thus, the emphasis on trauma education, peer support, equality, and empowerment is at the very roots of the Your Strength To Heal organization.
The need for educating the community about the effects of trauma and for a treatment center to serve women trauma survivors is critical. Your Strength To Heal has worked hard to build significant community support for its vision. Established detox programs, city and county government agencies, and professionals in the mental health field in San Mateo and San Francisco Counties are in agreement that there is a definite need for providing trauma education and other resources in the local community.
