EXPLORE THE MANY WAYS THE HIVE CAN HELP YOU
At The Hive we believe in partnering with survivors to assist them in receiving the best care and support as they seek to accomplish healing and justice. Support can be requested in the following areas:
Making the decision to disclose one’s abuse can be a daunting experience. When a survivor seeks support from The Hive, we connect them with a survivor who has been professionally trained to walk alongside providing emotional support as well as education on their rights, choices, and options that they may desire to explore.
Survivors seeking peer support may participate in Queens Gather. Queens Gather is a series of healing circles for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Healing circles are held in safe and affirming spaces facilitated by professionally trained survivors and allies. Over the course of the 13 weeks participants learn about the impact of trauma from abuse within each domain of their lives (physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, and financial) as well as develop tools and skills to assist them in managing the stressors often accompanied by abuse through the incorporation of the arts.
Often times when one has experienced abuse, other areas of their lives are impacted. The Hive partners with survivors to assist them in identifying and navigating those areas of support which may include but are not limited to workforce development/employment support, financial assistance, social services, housing, childcare, and safety. Referrals are also available for one on one counseling.
In efforts to assist a survivor’s economic stability, The Hive has created a formal partnership with Panera Bread of Covelli Enterprises. Thanks to Covelli Enterprises, we are able to offer survivors who are in need of new or additional employment an opportunity to work for Panera Bread. Management fast tracked opportunities may also be available.
