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
The Full Frame Initiative's approach to overall wellbeing for individuals, no matter who they are, or where they come from. Many of us relate to these areas in different ways, yet they remain key aspects of our overall wellness.

Those areas are:
• social connectedness to people and communities, in ways that allow us to give as well as to receive;
• stability that comes from having things we can count on to be the same from day to day, and knowing that a small bump won’t set off a domino-effect of crises;
• safety, the ability to be ourselves without significant harm;
• mastery, feeling that we can influence what happens to us, and having the skills to navigate and negotiate life; and
• meaningful access to relevant resources to meet our basic needs without shame, danger or great difficulty.
