Our Story

Everyone should have the opportunity to heal from harm.

As a police officer, Raphah Institute founder and CEO Travis Claybrooks saw firsthand the limitations of government systems alone to solve the complicated challenges facing people experiencing social harm. As a pastor, he also saw how distant he and many other people of faith were from the people and communities broken by harm and trauma. These observations led him to take action and join the many other community leaders working to make Nashville a city of healing.
