The Tribe Circle is Changing the response to women and children victims of domestic violence and trafficking. From our Personal Protection Specialist and Counselors that support them with extraction from where the abuse is happening, transportation to safe house locations, accompany victims to hospitals and court cases. We ensure these future survivors feel cared for. We work to mitigate barriers by building a circle of trust and protection around the victims by providing robust programming at every stage of the process . We call this programming our PAE (Protection, Advocacy, Education) Model.
In the years ahead, a large portion of the funds necessary to sustain and grow The Tribe Circle must be raised by from generous donors who are united with us in a common goal: Eradicating Domestic Violence. Creating healthy homes rooted in healing, community and growth.
The Tribe Circle is a specialty domestic violence organization, not just a safe shelter for women and children. We focus on providing exceptional care to victims with or without children. Acceptance to The Tribe Circle is generally based upon having a been a victim of domestic violence or sex-trafficking.
In our program makeup, we incorporate Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs. There are five main levels to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. These levels begin from the most basic needs to the most advanced needs. Maslow originally believed that a person needed to completely satisfy one level to begin pursuing further levels.
Read how The Tribe Circle approaches each need below.
Physiological needs are the lowest level of Maslow’s hierarchy. They are the most essential things a person needs to survive. They include the need for shelter, water, food, warmth, rest, and health. When someone contacts The Tribe Circle, and are accepted into our program they become a part of our community, and in most cases all physiological needs met.
The second level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs consists of safety. Safety, or security needs, relate to a person’s need to feel safe and secure in their life and surroundings. The Tribe Circle ensures from first contact that our clients are safe by building a circle of trust and protection around you, this often starts with our Personal Protection Specialist and Counselors that support you with extraction from where the abuse is happening, transportation to safe house locations, accompany you to hospitals and court cases.
The third level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is love and belonging. Humans are social creatures that crave interaction with others. This level of the hierarchy outlines the need for friendship, intimacy, family, and love. At The Tribe Circle a major focus for us is community. Once you’re a part of of family, you gain access to our community. Share your experiences and listen to others in our Listening Circle group
The fourth level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is Esteem. Esteem needs are related to a person’s need to gain recognition, status, and feel respected. Once someone has fulfilled their love and belonging needs, they seek to fulfill their esteem needs. Through our curriculum, the growth journey will continue within the women and children through customized educational classes to reach each individual need level.
In partnership with Salt + Light Agency whose goal is to create access to operational and branding for underrepresented and marginalized communities business owners, we have created Salt + Light Community, a hub for peer to peer mentoring and resources for those who seeking out the next level in their journey.
The fifth and final level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is self-actualization needs. Self-actualization relates to the realization of an individual’s full potential. At this level, people strive to become the best that they possibly can be.
