I am constantly reminded of the importance of adult relationships and their impact on family life. At Greenleaf Family Center, our staff is faced with the difficulties adult partners have and how the “success” or “failure” of these relationships affect children, employment, coworkers, and community. Our goal is to help them face, understand, and deal with the difficult issues that are barriers to the caring they so deserve.

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.
