As a longtime social work professional, Melissa Santos was well aware of the effects of trauma, but when intimate partner abuse came into her life, she found herself struggling. Community Solutions’ Adriana Marquez, host of the Solutions to Violence Community Corner, spoke with Melissa about her journey to reconnect with her inner strength and spirit.

Pathways to Resilience: Healing in Community with One Another

Jeff Jacobs knew something was wrong when a routine sprained ankle triggered symptoms of a heart attack. He’d known for years that he lived with a generalized anxiety disorder, but as a senior human resources professional, he’d built his career on sweating details, pushing himself to do better, and caring about others’ needs more than his own.

“"[I enjoyed] the handouts, power point presentation, facilitator's delivery of the information, facilitator's cultural competence and how well he incorporated cultural considerations into the training, and all the resources that were provided.”

RU Health, CBT: A Clinical Perspective, April 2023

“The speaker made everyone feel safe and encouraged communication. She shared her own experiences and asked others to share theirs.”

DFCS, Recognizing Our Implicit Bias, October 2023

“I really appreciated that there were many opportunities during the training for us to participate, either in front of the group or in pairs, which I think really helped to engage with the subject material as well as give an idea of what it would look like in practice.”

CS Staff, Mental Health Assessment, December 2023

“I loved that he used the assessment that our County actually uses to do the training so the information felt EXTREMLY relevant. I also was grateful for the resources that he offered on top of the powerpoint.”

RU Health, Mental Health Assessment, April 2023

“I liked the pauses we had to reflect, the videos that were used, and bringing a speaker to talk about FASD and the work she's doing on the back end to bring further awareness.”

The Keys to Understanding FASD, April 2023

“One thing that I liked about this training was that we were able to practice and role model in the sessions as facilitators and as participants. Something else that I liked was the the facilitators were very welcoming and made me feel comfortable discussing the different topics.”

CF! Training of the Trainer, December 2023

At Community Solutions I met some wonderful women who helped me with my fears and helped me understand that I did not deserve to be abused by anyone.

Luz, age 50, Solutions to Violence

[Community Solutions] helped me with my problems and were there when I was having hard times. They have helped my family with a place to live and helped us pay some bills and buy some food when we needed it.

Serena, age 15, Child & Youth Behavioral Health

I cannot describe very well but all I know is that each day is getting better. Your program helps.

Jin, age 62, Adult Behavioral Health

Thanks to the program, I left the ugly house I was living in that had two small windows for the 8 of us, dirt floors, broken windows, no door, and the toilet always clogging. Now my children and I have a nice apartment where we have more space, privacy, and carpet where we can be barefoot.
