Programs of Alliance for HOPE International include:
Family Justice Center Alliance – Supports developing and operating Family Justice Centers and Multi-Agency Centers where survivors and their children can come to one place for wraparound services, instead of having to go from agency to agency, telling their story over and over to find safety, healing, and hope. We help communities plan and open Family Justice Centers. We provide community assessment and strategic planning support throughout the planning process. Local communities hire the Alliance to assist with a community readiness assessment and strategic planning for most of the Centers in the United States. Contact the FJCA Team for a free webinar on the services we provide and the costs for our services, by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training Institute on Strangulation Prevention – Provides training to family violence and sexual assault professionals on the handling of near-fatal strangulation and suffocation assaults and operates the most comprehensive training program in the country for doctors, nurses, law enforcement, prosecutors, advocates, and other professionals. We provide free resources on the Institute website and provide fee-based training for law enforcement agencies, prosecutors’ offices, healthcare systems and medical professionals, community-based domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, elder abuse, human trafficking, probation and parole officers, and any others seeking to better understand best practices in supporting survivors. Reach out to the Institute team about getting a training proposal for in-person and virtual 1-4 day trainings we provide by emailing us at: email@example.com
Camp HOPE America – Provides evidence-based mentoring and camping experiences for children exposed to domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Camp HOPE helps give children their childhood back and changes the destinies of children otherwise destined for pain, heartbreak, and intergenerational transmission of their trauma. Communities can create a Camp HOPE America program in partnership with us to become one of our affiliated Camp HOPE America sites. Camp HOPE America is a powerful pathway for trauma-impacted youth in your community to overcome the trauma they have experienced. Reach out to the Camp HOPE America team about starting Camp HOPE America in your community, by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
VOICES Survivor Network – This program represents a network of survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault who celebrate their strength and survival. VOICES chapters across the country help advocate for local Family Justice Centers and multi-agency models and provide accountability for the work of local agencies in their implementation of policies and procedures that impact survivors. VOICES chapters now exist in 24 states. If you are interested in learning more about our VOICES Survivor Network, email us at: VOICES@allianceforhope.com.
DomesticShelters.org – The first and largest online searchable directory of domestic violence programs and shelters in the U.S. and Canada. It is the most comprehensive collection of information and tools that help people identify, escape, and heal from abuse. They also provide training and resources for the professionals who support victims and survivors of domestic abuse. Domestic violence and sexual assault organizations, Family Justice Centers, and other collaborative services agencies can claim their profile on DomesticShelters, can access online advocacy training for free, and can create a customized electronic Amazon WISH LIST on the website for items for their clients for free. Supporters of your organization can then access your WISH LIST easily, purchase items, receive a tax deduction, and the items are directly shipped to any confidential address your organization uses. Please contact us at email@example.com. You may also watch this video to learn more.
The Alliance provides Introductory Courses on the Science of HOPE for organizations, builds online courses for agencies, and hosts a two-day HOPE Coaching Course for agencies based on the bestselling book by Casey Gwinn and Chan Hellman, Hope Rising: How the Science of HOPE Can Change Your Life. Trauma-informed practice is important in working with adult and child trauma survivors but hope-centered work is even more important. Hope predicts well-being in trauma survivors. Hope is measurable, teachable, and malleable. Becoming a hope-centered organization should be the goal of every community-based organization in the country. We work with Fortune 300 companies, nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies across the country to understand the science of hope and implement hope-centered practices for clients, customers, staff, and stakeholders. For more information, contact Alliance President Casey Gwinn directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hidden Homicides Project – The Institute also provides consulting and forensic evaluation services on suspicious death cases across the country. We host courses for the U.S. Department of Justice, through our Institute, and for individual communities, Family Justice Centers, or agencies focused on how to investigate suspicious death cases where there is a history of domestic violence. Law enforcement agencies retain us for consulting and forensic evaluation services in suspicious death cases. Families also retain our services for advocacy assistance if a loved one dies, and the death is ruled an accident, suicide, or undetermined cause of death.
