We value self-determination, sharing knowledge, restorative justice, social justice, harm reduction, healing, connection & community for all.

We honor the language that people use and perceptions people have about their own experiences and thus support each individual to explore and celebrate their own reality, their own pathways and barriers to health and in developing whatever coping strategies work for them.

We understand that states-of-being exist along a continuum and can be dynamic and interconnected, from diagnosed conditions, expected stress responses trauma and violence, systemic, intergenerational and epigenetic factors, social exclusion and harmful and dominant narratives that further marginalize and isolate people.

We focus on creating connection through collaboration in community service, art and social networking and do not expect people to open up about difficult life experiences but provide support, safety and transparency if they do share.
