HEART offers a ‘safe space’ for self-exploration and fellowship. HEART is an engaging experience with fellow victims, their potent testimonies [of hurt and healing] which can greatly and positively affect emotional healing. Through community partnerships, HEART strives to raise awareness and educate community about the traumatic effects of sexual violence.
