CHH’s Mission and Vision is based within a social justice framework. We understand that sexual violence as a tool of oppression and directly relates to other forms of oppression including racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ageism, and ableism. Sexual violence thrives in an oppressive culture and thus the best way to end sexual violence is to dismantle all forms of oppression.

Additionally, the services offered by CHH are designed to empower survivors by providing information, tools, resources, and opportunities, and works with survivors respectfully, recognizing that the system can be confusing and overwhelming to a survivor of violence. The Counselors at CHH work together in a ‘Team’ concept, where they share information with each other for the benefit of survivors.
