Center for Healing and Renewal

A comprehensive community mental health based service offering a broad range of interrelated activities housed within a positive, stable residential center for 40 families made up of Syrian refugee widows and their children. The goal is to provide a secure environment for healing and prepare individuals and families for recovery and moving forward with their lives through promoting empowerment, independence, and a self-help community.

Building management staff are provided with lay-support and para-professional skills to increase their ability to support residents.
The service model is designed to be holistic and whole-person in addressing essential multifaceted and inter-linked needs of the individual and community, and to be a project that can be replicated, portable, scalable, and operate in situations where there are scarce resources. It also includes a research aspect.
