The Positive Impact of Our Members

After being in our services and some time spent healing, the women we serve are ready and express interest in preparing for their future through employment and educational opportunities. Healing Action has started a Survivor Leadership program to provide women we serve with these opportunities, through a safe and therapeutic environment. Since November 2016, members have worked 451.75 hours. Survivor Leaders have completed the Certified Missouri Peer Specialist program, attended financial literacy classes, completed community outreach with community organizations twice a week, interacting with approximately 40 individuals each time, assisted with scheduling presentations with community organizations and businesses and collected over $3000 of in-kind donations for our annual fundraisers. Other members have gone on to obtain jobs in the community, and have applied and been accepted to colleges in St. Louis
