Amelia Rising is here to help you get the information and tools you need to work through trauma and move toward recovery. Our trauma-informed approach is based on understanding and responding to trauma in a holistic way that considers physical, psychological, and emotional safety to empower and rebuild a feeling of control. We are committed to breaking down barriers that limit access to services, particularly for Indigenous peoples, 2S-LGBTQ+ people, those with disabilities/identify as disabled, and those who live in poverty.
