WHAT WE DO
The CHAT Project works with people impacted by family, domestic, and sexual violence. We provide facilitation directly to families and individuals seeking restorative and collective responses to violence and healing. This includes one-to-one meetings, engaging with family and support systems, working directly with people who have caused harm and people who have been harmed, and facilitation of face-to-face gatherings.
The CHAT Project is seeking facilitators interested in working directly with individuals and families impacted by domestic and sexual violence. We value personal, professional, community, and cultural experience and wisdom when considering readiness to be a facilitator.
This is not a good fit for those who have no prior experience in facilitation of dialogues, community accountability, and/or responding to violence. It is important for anyone partnering with The CHAT Project to share alignment with our mission and values.
