Crisis Intervention Program
G.R.O.W. Foundation will assist with providing emergency hotel lodging at an unidentified location for up to 72 hours for survivors (and their children, if applicable) who are escaping abuse. This resource is aimed to promote safety and prevent homelessness in the event area domestic violence prevention agencies are unable to place the survivor and their family in shelter at the time of crisis. G.R.O.W. Foundation will then work with community partners to secure temporary shelter for the survivor or family in need.
At G.R.O.W. Foundation, each client is paired with an experienced advocate who will offer confidential, individualized, and trauma-informed care to the survivor by way of providing emotional support, short-term case management, domestic violence education, resources, and service referrals.
G.R.O.W. Foundation also works to assist survivors in crisis who may be experiencing food, clothing, and personal hygiene insecurity. With the help of community partners, supporters, and donors, we can provide short term assistance with ensuring survivors are able to clean, clothe, and feed themselves (and their children, if applicable)—the basic needs that every human deserves to have fulfilled.
‘GROWing Fighters’ is a private support group for domestic violence survivors ages 18+ and is open to survivors of any gender, gender identity, sexual preference, nationality, race, religious belief, or background. Offering a trauma informed and strength-based environment, ‘GROWing Fighters’ meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month and is jointly facilitated by G.R.O.W. Foundation’s founder, Neisha Himes, and LPC Resident, Amanda Romero, who specializes in trauma counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy. Each meeting includes one hour of group counseling, followed by 45-minutes of an invigorating group boxing and fitness workout facilitated by MatchBout Athletic Development Center.
