Mission Statement

A Window Between Worlds is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using art as a healing tool to empower and transform individuals and communities impacted by violence and trauma.

Description

Since 1991, AWBW has provided creative expression as a healing tool for over 131,000 battered women and their children in crisis shelters, transitional homes, and outreach centers throughout the United States.
By providing an environment that promotes healing, art workshops help women and children to develop a renewed sense of hope and possibility that profoundly impacts future decisions regarding the direction of their lives, their relationships, and how to stay safe. Art empowers survivors to transform how they view themselves, allowing them to see past the abusive messages they learned from their batterers and rebuild their self-confidence.

A Window Between Worlds' partners have long recognized the impact of Windows trauma-informed arts programs for survivors of all forms of trauma*. Through partnership with agencies serving trauma survivors in various fields, AWBW is further developing trauma-informed art workshops to better serve the following sectors: sexual assault, veteran's communities, homelessness, male survivors, and batterer's intervention.It is our hope to make this resource available to any agency seeking a trauma-informed and strength based service that offers art as a healing tool to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and other forms of prolonged trauma.
