Family Wellness Warriors Initiative (FWWI) seeks to address the devastating problems of domestic violence, abuse, and neglect in the Alaska Native community. Its purpose is to equip organizations and individuals to effectively address the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical effects of domestic violence, abuse, and neglect. It is our desire to encourage wellness in each of these areas in the individual, the family, the community, and the world in which we live:
* Families and Communities
* With hearts open to change
* Working together with others through education and training
* Instilling hope for restoration and wellness
i got to participate in part of one of their conferences it was an amazing healing experience. it caught me off guard. i will write more about that later.
FWWI is an alaskan native lead initiative to break the cycle & end the silence of abuse. they use truth telling, empathy, culture, and hearing. its quite powerful. i got just a smidgen and healed a ton.
