Justice Is Healing.
Raphah Institute helps communities heal from social harm by confronting and solving its root causes.
"Justice is loving on each other so much, that we all thrive." ~Travis Claybrooks
Every day people are traumatized by social harm. Structural and systemic defects often leave people few options for positive change and healing. This leaves people stuck in cycles of harm - generation after generation.
Through strategic partnerships…
Raphah Institute represents a chance to confront the root causes of societal harm, take a uniquely crafted approach, and see transformative healing for all.
Strategic partnership is fundamental to how we work. We partner with those closest to the problem, believing that, together, we have what it takes to find workable solutions.
Guided by our collective wisdom, we design courageous and innovative solutions to undo the root causes of harm in our communities.
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.
