The programs of Family Trauma Survivors' Network, Inc. provide support,
education, and advocacy to Survivors of long term childhood abuse and neglect
whether that victimization was from sexual, physical, or mental violence.
SUPPORT: Family Trauma Survivors’ Network sees the
needs of Survivors for supportive relationships
and offers support groups to give Survivors a place to experience safe relationships,
grow personally, and feel empowered to express their gifts. The FTSN support
program uses a developmental approach in its efforts to help Survivors build
a greater sense of self, stronger connections to others, and a solid foundation
for interfacing with daily responsibilities.
EDUCATION: Family Trauma Survivors’ Network provides
education to the community about the needs of Trauma Survivors as well as
our strengths, courage, creativity and compassion. It also provides education
to Survivors about coping with the effects of trauma, preventing revictimization,
nurturing the Survivor within, negotiating healthy relationships, and dealing
with life on life's terms.
ADVOCACY: Family Trauma Survivors’ Network advocates
on behalf of Trauma Survivors for improved services, better health care,
housing, and employment. FTSN cooperates with and supports the efforts of
other organizations in seeking a better future for Survivors.
