Yes, this is another Covid induced postponement.
Sadly, we had to put Coming Home on hold at the end of last year, but we have been busy refining and reinventing this campaign and will be relaunching it very soon! Stay posted!
Coming Home celebrates hope and union after trauma.
It's about building community, finding the power in having a support network, and ultimately healing and renewing hope.
The campaign will be equally as much about the celebration of healing as it will be focused on education and intervention in the community.
Coming home is about turning hurt and pain into something beautiful, guiding people towards the light, and helping them to find a community to build their strength and spark their hope.
Coming Home is a conversation, an opportunity, a light. Coming Home will hold your hand and walk you through stories of survivors, offer hope and raise awareness of the complex and intimate journey of healing that occurs after one has experienced sexual assault or trauma. We promise to hold space for all stories, offer a message of hope and highlight the power and beauty in reclaiming one's true narrative.
For those of us involved in this campaign, we are sharing our stories and wearing our scars in order to help you do the same. To show you that healing looks different for us all. That trauma affects us all in different ways. That coming home is a journey but there is always hope. For those unfamiliar with these experiences, we invite you to walk with us for a while. Read the stories from survivors, learn where to get help and how to tackle this topic in a safe way.
Coming Home is progressive and addresses non conventional or under reported or supported modes for healing.
Science can be black and white, but we believe preventative medicine, support and healing is about covering all of the different ways healing can be represented.
We support artists, musicians, poets, however, you find peace or a moment of mindfulness for healing, we believe in it, and Coming Home will support all of these non-traditional ways to find and seek hope after trauma.
