Reunion Magazine

We call it a magazine, but Reunion is intended to be so much more. The magazine was first born from a need and desire among our program participants, practitioners, and partners for a community that collectively turns towards the issues of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. Our participants and supporters alike were searching for a way to stay connected to Joyful Heart. And we were looking for a way to stay connected to our joyful community. All of us were looking for a kind of… Reunion.

Our goal for the publication is ambitious, but so is the work of healing. Since our first issue in 2010, Reunion has become comprehensive program of its own. Reunion Online is an extension of the print version of Reunion, featuring our blogs, information about our issues, news from Joyful Heart, and many ways to get involved.

Reunion focuses on a facet of our work and on a message of healing. The magazine has featured a survivors' path to joy and has engaged readers in three ways that mirror our mission:

  1. Helping survivors and practitioners heal from trauma with thoughtful self-care.
  2. Educating our supporters and partners about issues important to our cause.
  3. Empowering the wider community with ways to work together to help end the cycle of violence and abuse.

We invite you to reconnect with your joyful potential. Welcome to our Reunion.
