Many who leave polygamy often need a variety of resources to support their journeys of becoming emotionally and financially independent. Individual's needs are assessed to determine which resources will be most beneficial to them. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, basic physiological along with safety and security are priority before other needs can be met. Many people leaving polygamy are in a state of crisis and in need of basic resources. Some need shelter, food, and clothing, while others are ready for a job, schooling, and navigating their new social life. However, without having a needs assessment it is hard to determine what resources will be most beneficial to each individual.

We want to teach you how to find resources that you need to empower you towards emotional, physical, and financial independence. At this time, in our beginning stage, we have compiled a list of resources below, that we have found to be useful. However, we still offer services for free in helping you navigate life after polygamy so please contact us if you are in need of any support or assistance outside of polygamy.

Our Services Include:

  • Scholarships toward education

  • Educational services and planning
