As we move forward through this new year, we occasionally need to take a moment to reflect on what we have accomplished and been a part of. Growth and change are constant; the key is to keep this evolution positive and community-strengthening. This March, we offer a fresh perspective for this growth, change and zeal for life through our partnership with Bradley Angle.

In addition to their ongoing efforts to fill the needs of the survivors of domestic violence and their families, Bradley Angle is pleased to announce that they have recently started their first Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model (TREM) group in partnership with Providence Portland Medical Center and Portland State University. The only trauma-informed mental health group of its kind in the area focuses entirely on the victims of domestic violence.

Bradley Angle have also entered a promising new partnership with Kinship House to provide clinical counseling to address the concerns of child welfare.  Participants can now address concerns of financial education, culturally-specific services, youth support, and mobile advocacy under one roof at the Bradley Angle Resource Center, removing many long-standing barriers which previously inhibited access.   Their current efforts also include the use of an Advocate Institute to bring financial education to the survivors of domestic violence.

Besaw's is pleased to donate a portion of its March dinner sales to the ongoing efforts of Bradley Angle.
