Casey Gwinn spent the first 15 years of his career prosecuting domestic violence cases, but he always knew prosecution was not enough and it was way too late to break the generational cycles of violence that plague so many families. In 2002, he opened the first Family Justice Center in America, bringing 25 agencies under one roof to serve victims of domestic and sexual violence. In 2003, he founded Camp HOPE San Diego, the first camping and mentoring program in the country for children 7-17 years of age impacted by domestic violence. Today, Camp HOPE America is operating in 20 states but his dream is to see it expand to all 50 states within ten years. Camp HOPE America is the leading year-round camping and mentoring program in the country for children and teens impacted by domestic violence. They are focused on creating collaborative, trauma-informed, as well as hope-centered and healing-centered pathways for trauma-exposed youth to believe in themselves, in others, and in their dreams. Casey says it this way, “We can love trauma-impacted kids at ten and give them a pathway to hope and healing or we can lock them up at 17 and say we are tough on crime. It is our choice.” For more information, please visit www.camphopeamerica.org.
