Community Center & Virtual Grace
The Welcome Community Center provides whole body (mind/body/spirit) care, particularly focused on healing trauma, education, justice issues and interfaith conversations in person and online. https://www.virtualgrace.org/
We're partnering with the SFPD and others to create a chaplaincy program that can be dispatched by San Francisco's first responders. We are also working to empower communities with historical and current tension with the SFPD to develop community policing strategies and local best practices for responding to tensions between the community and the SFPD. This project is a partnership, that will likely create a new non-profit. Learn more.
