Strands of Compassion’s mission and purpose is to provide education and support to improve the lives of traumatized youth. Our vision is to offer healing and hope to children, young adults, and families affected by abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Our hope is that those who have been abused and neglected will be empowered to grow up to be happy, productive and caring adults. Strands of Compassion is made up of dedicated trauma informed specialists of the Karyn Purvis Institute of Childhood Development at Texas Christian University specializing in TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention). We believe in the ability to change lives and we offer hope and help to begin the journey of healing.
