“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” 

John Muir

resources: local & national violence prevention & intervention organizations

The following resources are not an all inclusive list of prevention and intervention organizations on a mission to end violence in our streets, homes, and community. We encourage our visitors to learn more about why intervention organizations save lives and consider supporting them as one action we can take to help support a brighter tomorrow. Many organizations welcome and rely on donations and volunteers to advance this critical mission forward.

If your organization would like to be added to this list of resources, please email growers@elisgardenofhealing.com
