Abuse comes in many forms. It is prevalent around the world and in virtually every community. Its destructive effects can be life-long and intergenerational. In 2003, MTS was organized as a faith-based nonprofit organization to educate and resource individuals, churches, and service organizations with sustainable trauma care resources contextualized for their specific communities.
We believe God made humans in his own image. This involves humans being made relational beings. Thus, we are best nurtured and healed in relationship. MTS provides resources which are best utilized with others, either one on one, in small groups, or in communities.
To bring community-based restoration to people worldwide who have experienced abuse.
