TREM Women's Support
The Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM) is a gender-based trauma model designed to address issues of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse in the lives of women who have been economically and socially marginalized and for whom traditional recovery work has been unavailable or ineffective. The model was developed by clinicians at Community Connections in Washington, D.C. with considerable input from consumers. TREM uses a psycho-educational focus and skill-building approach, emphasizes survivor empowerment and peer support, and teaches women techniques for self-soothing, boundary maintenance, and current problem-solving.

2. Participants will learn specific recovery and healing techniques used in the TREM model.
3. Participants will participate in a group setting (online or in-person).
4. Participants will learn coping mechanisms to aid in their recovery journey.
5. Participants will learn how and when to use grounding techniques.

R.E.C.O.V.E.R.Y Life Coaching (RLC) provides transformational life coaching tools that restore the mental well-being of men, women, and children who have been directly or indirectly affected by domestic violence. With underlining concerns for the impact of domestic violence, situational depression, loss, and grief, RLC provides a supportive and non-judgmental approach to identifying root causes and past traumas to encourage and empower our clients to heal from the inside out.

Educational DV and IPV Prevention Workshops
Awareness Workshops have been created to empower individuals and communities to take proactive steps to prevent problems and improve their overall well-being. These workshops aim to raise awareness about domestic violence, abuse prevention, and strategies for creating healthy and respectful relationships. Our workshops also aim to educate participants about mental health challenges, healthy parenting, stress reduction, anxiety management, and building resilience.
Referral & Resource Services
We want to help survivors and our community to get the help that they need. We assist by connecting individuals with the resources they require, whether it's access to education, shelter, clothing, food, job, or other support services, through our client assessment or intake process, we can gain an understanding of the individual's or organization's needs and then provide them with information about available options or make direct referrals to the appropriate service providers. These services can play a crucial role in improving access to essential resources and support for those in need. These centers serve as hubs for providing information about local resources and services available to residents. They may offer referrals for childcare, employment assistance, legal aid, and more. Social services agencies often provide referrals to individuals or families in need of assistance. This can include referrals for housing, food assistance, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, and more.
Subject Matter Awareness Events
A crucial role of our organization is raising awareness of public safety and health emergencies such as Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Violence. We believe that it is important to mobilize individuals and communities to address important issues and challenges in various sectors of DV and IPV. We participate and provide platforms for sharing knowledge, fostering dialogue, and driving positive change. Our events are centered around trauma recovery, and social justice issues, including discussions on civil rights, gender equality, and marginalized communities.
Our hope and focus is to inspire attendees to take action or advocate for a cause or issue. In all of our events, we create a safe space for participants to connect with like-minded individuals, organizations, and experts who share a common interest in the subject matter. Networking can lead to collaborations, partnerships, and the exchange of ideas. Therefore, Attendees are encouraged to participate in workshops, breakout sessions, or interactive activities that provide a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Our events often feature experts, thought leaders, or professionals who are knowledgeable on the topics being discussed.
Two awareness months that BF2F aims to have events are Mental Health Awareness Month in May, and our annual I AM Enough Survivor’s Symposium is held every October in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
We speak out and up 365 days of the year about social justice and we are part of the change that we want to see in the world.
