Mary Parrish Center
The mission of The Mary Parrish Center is to provide a therapeutic transitional housing program and a myriad of loving, comprehensive services enabling survivors of domestic violence to heal from their abuse, reclaim their autonomy and reawaken their hopes and dreams. The grant requested will be used to fund the partial salary for a therapist position to provide holistic therapeutic/support services to the women and children of the transitional housing program and to provide supervision for it. 8 of 11 (73%) of the residents, as a result of their relationship with the TEC, will report a reduction in the symptoms of PTSD and other disruptions that occur as a result of physical and/or psychological trauma (e.g. nightmares, hyper vigilance, sleep disruptions, and appetite disturbances) and will further report an increase in an overall sense of wellbeing and hopefulness. 8 of 11 (73%) of the residents will report an overall improvement in their physical health and the health of their children as a result of working with the TEC on meal planning.
