Communities that flourish recognize the need to aggressively combat attitudes, activities and policies that allow for the victimization of people and mobilize community members in coordinated efforts to protect and to take their communities back from the grip of these paths of despair.

Drug abuse and addiction, suicide, violence and human trafficking are fueled by the exploitation of people and are perpetuated by despair. Instead of enabling people to find and access healthy ways to grow, cope, function, and survive, these “paths of despair” trap people in cycles of harmful patterns of dealing with pain, loss, grief, and trauma with short-term “solutions” that, in the end, exacerbate the problems they promised to solve.
