Beauty After Bruises is dedicated to providing survivors of childhood trauma with access to, and funding for, therapeutic and inpatient care; while creating professional and public awareness for Complex PTSD. Until recently, Complex PTSD and Dissociative Trauma Disorders were thought to be rare mental health conditions. This fallacy created a shortage of specialized therapists and an ever-growing population of forgotten patients. Beauty After Bruises seeks to bridge that gap by providing comprehensive education to clinicians and the public while connecting survivors to the resources they need.

Diakon Child, Family, and Community Ministries offer a wide range of services for children, youths, families, adult individuals and communities as a whole. These services include adoption, foster care, at-risk youth programs, community-based services for older adults, family preservation and reunification, and specialized counseling services for children, youths, adults and families. Diakon Adoption & Foster Care continually needs new resource families to serve children and teens who need foster care, may be available for adoption and have special needs. including conditions terms medically fragile. Diakon celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018, a testament to its ability to grow and adapt to changes in society and societal needs.
