Our Solutions

Since formation, Root of the Matter has provided a variety of educational workshops and conferences for community members to attend. During this time, our experienced presenters speak on the definition of domestic violence and how to assist those involved in a harmful situation. All presentations are available to any community member in the area looking to increase their knowledge on the subject and effectively assist their loved ones.

Root of the Matter also facilitates professional counseling sessions for community members in need of a supportive and safe environment to address the difficulties they may be facing. Interested participants may schedule appointments with our experienced and licensed professionals in order to complete our intake process and begin the process of healing.

Root of the Matter’s staff members complete a thorough intake process for each client that enrolls in our services. The preliminary sessions provide our counselors with the opportunity to introduce themselves to the client, begin building a sense of trust and open dialogue with our clients, and determine the frequency of counseling sessions scheduled per individual. The amount of sessions that each client attends will vary and is dependent upon their needs, availability, and interest.

Our activities are overseen by a group of well-qualified individuals. Our diverse staff members have ties to the community, and thus possess the unique ability to relate to the target demographic. Additionally, our Board of Directors is comprised of a professional group of talented individuals who are dedicated to committing their time and resources to building a stronger community.
