The Salasin Project supports survivors of interpersonal violence including emotional, verbal, physical, and financial abuse and for sexual assault survivors and adults who experienced or witnessed abuse as children and adolescents. The Salasin Project offers support and resources using a person centered approach, partnering with individuals to identify goals and the next steps in healing and recovery.
The Salasin Project offers solace to those living in fear of violence and abuse, and helps them achieve a full and satisfying life free of violence and its consequences. Through trauma-informed supports, Salasin helps with healing through mutually empowering relationships and community participation, providing opportunities for connections to peer-to-peer support, educational opportunities, access to information and resources, and a nonjudgmental, stigma-free environment. The Salasin Project’s peer model honors the lived experience of both staff and participants, empowering participants to build healthy relationships and take leadership and ownership both within and outside of the Salasin community.
