As COVID-19 continues to present unprecedented challenges to all of our programs at Family Tree, we are consistently working towards providing safe and adapted services to all of our clients. Our Legal Advocacy Program is no exception. However, we recognize the need for in-person services now and in the future.
Each survivor encountered through our programs at Family Tree has a unique story and situation.
A familiar one for those working with these clients, and one not always considered, is the prevalence of domestic violence within immigrant groups and against undocumented individuals.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), and although Family Tree has several programs that work with survivors of domestic violence, one of the programs focuses on preventing violence in addition to providing services to those affected.
This October, in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), Family Tree invites readers to take part by learning more through personal stories, educational topics, and explore the services we provide to survivors and their children.
For some of us, being outside is the most dangerous place to be; but for thousands of people worldwide, the most dangerous place to be is in their very own home. While governments are managing shelter in place orders, many people who have been experiencing domestic violence have been unable to leave their abusers.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Family Tree is raising awareness of the prevalence and warning signs of child abuse as well as providing ways that we can all help strengthen families to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Parenthood brings some of the most precious and impactful moments of your life. Children shape us into human beings that run on nothing but love and joy. Once you become a parent, your child’s happiness is always intertwined with yours. Parenthood also brings many challenges and stressful times along the parenting journey.
