Concept – Seed to Soil is a gateway to conquering one’s most challenging obstacles, as a result from either domestic violence or sexual abuse. Individuals who may not have experienced domestic violence or sexual abuse, yet have been affected by someone else who has experienced domestic violence or sexual abuse may equally benefit from the program. The concept of Seed to Soil symbolizes the process of starting something new. An awakening of sort, to the understanding of what is necessary to move one’s life in the direction it deserves. Our program helps individuals discover the issues in which they feel are most detrimental to their mental, psychological, and spiritual health. Once identified, a clear understanding of what is needed to move beyond prior challenges and grow is encapsulated in a new declaration metaphorically symbolized as a “Seed”. Thereby the process of allegorically planting the seed is an affirmation of starting a new path of life beginning with one’s optimistic thoughts. The soil represents an entity in which one’s trust is reciprocated. This step is empowering as one must trust their determination, vision, and will into soil believing that at such a moment, growth and recovery is guaranteed. Soil helps the seed to grow and provides a place of covering (support). As the seed begins to grow, it must always have the nourishment required to maintain its healthiest and most full life.

The goal remains the same, however public members do not have 24-hour access (support) on demand. Not all participants of the program will be both a survivor of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Many individuals who contact our organization and express distress or other issues as a result of being exposed (not a victim of) to others being sexually abused or a survivor of domestic violence, may benefit from “parts” if not all of our Seed to Soil program moreover.

No. Not everyone who has experienced or has seen the acts of domestic violence or sexual abuse by their own account are negatively affected by such occurrences. We encourage individuals who are struggling with domestic violence and/or sexual abuse issues to utilize the program. The program is useless for individuals who do not need it, or perceive that they do not need its resources.
