Winter 2021 Newsletter



Healing for the Healer Retreats

The Healing Trust has offered Healing for the Healer Retreats since 2008 as a way to say thank you to helping professionals in our community. In response to the needs of our grantee partners, we’ve made a few updates

Welcome, Ashiya!

 We recently brought on Ashiya Swan as an additional retreat facilitator.  Read on to find out why she’s so excited about the retreats!


Racial Equity Workshops

We are offering a complimentary series of workshops that are designed to help nonprofits create more racially diverse and equitable organizations. The workshop topics include staff and board diversity, community engagement, organizational policies and programs.


Self-care Inspiration

Leader Peer Circle Program

The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for connection and relationship-building between peers, which is difficult to do in a virtual setting and in the presence of so many other distractions. We are hopeful that it will be safe to meet in-person in the summer and are shifting the timeline of the program from January-December to July-June. Applications for the program will be available on our website mid-April 2021.
