In collaboration with The University of Akron, Greenleaf Family Center provides counseling services for the Project Hope (Helping Overcome Post-traumatic Stress through Empowerment) Program.
Project HOPE is a four-year research project which provides counseling services to victims of intimate partner violence who seek safety and support from shelter. HOPE is unique in its focus on empowerment, teaching women how to cope with the fears and anxiety related to their battering, and how to move their lives forward. The program targets women who exhibit classic symptoms of post-traumatic stress, a highly disabling disorder that is under-treated among victims of intimate partner violence. HOPE will be offered in six shelters in five counties over the course of the next four years. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of HOPE, women will be followed and assessed for one year after completing the treatment program.
