Trauma and the struggle for healing do not end at the conclusion of the traumatic events.

One's home, community and city policy can nurture healing, even though new traumas occur, interfering with one's ability to heal. The MAYE Center’s Education Program teaches people how to empower themselves through civic education and participation by integrating survivors in developing a safe space for themselves, actively participating in building their home, community and shaping local city policy.
