The mission of the Surviving Spirit is to promote Hope, Healing and Help for those impacted by trauma, abuse or mental health concerns through the use of the creative arts, education and advocacy.
A world of acceptance and community support where creative expression is valued and available as a pathway of healing for survivors of sexual abuse, trauma and mental health challenges.
The Surviving Spirit shall provide awareness, information, services, and advocacy for individuals and their families who have experienced a form of trauma, abuse, and/or who have mental health concerns. The Surviving Spirit will also provide a forum for these same individuals to utilize the creative and physical arts to build awareness, understanding and expression of their experiences. We do this through our speakers' bureau, newsletter, website, retail gallery, coffeehouse, special events and media center.
