Since 1977, the Crime Victims Treatment Center has been helping survivors of interpersonal violence heal. Our support comes in the forms of crisis intervention, individual and group trauma-focused therapy, legal advocacy, complementary therapy and psychiatric consultation. We are available from the moments following an assault, all the way through the culmination of a survivor's healing process. All of our services are confidential and completely free of charge.

WARM is dedicated to providing a personal approach to healing by walking with survivors side by side in their journey. We help navigate frontlines and serve those under-resourced, left with little to no aid. Going beyond formalities, we support survivors and our community effectively by cutting through the bureaucracy that too often delays, derails, and blocks the help people need.
The Mission of Trauma and Resiliency Resources (TRR) is to end military suicides. They do this by focusing on Military Moral Injury© – a term coined to describe the wounding to the heart and soul of our warfighters and to distinguish that experience from what others are calling “moral injuries.” TRR saves the lives of military veterans, and also improves and changes their lives. They do this through our Warrior Camp® program. TRR’s focus is not simply on the prevention of veteran suicide, but on improving the day-to-day lives of our nation's combat veterans and the people closest to them.
Rethink Certified is a certification program for food system stakeholders, including restaurants, food services, retailers, and food producers – recognizing bold efforts by all while also creating a network of aligned partners working together towards the mission of creating a more sustainable and equitable food system. By creating connections across the food system, they're empowering change and scaling impact.
Founded as Friends of Island Academy in 1990, Youth Justice Network was created by a group of educators, social service staff, and community-based advocates at the alternative high school on Rikers Island — known then as Island Academy. They are part of an advocacy movement seeking to permanently close Rikers. Thanks to the collective work of committed advocates, there are no more 16-17-year-olds incarcerated on Rikers Island.
