Tonier "Neen" Cain has overcome a life on the fringes for two decades, she hustled on the streets,  feeding a crack addiction, 83 arrests, rapes, beatings, home under a bridge or inside prison. 2004, pregnant and incarcerated for violation of parole, she was provided the opportunity to go to a community trauma, mental health and addictions program. Feeling safe for the first time in her life, Neen confronted the haunting childhood memories that she tried to numb with drugs: filth and chronic hunger, sexual assaults by neighborhood men, routine physical and mental abuse dished out by her drunken mother.  Realizing for the first time that she had been a victim, she began to heal and reclaim power over her life, embarking on a remarkable “upward spiral,” that has no limit.  Today, she works for the National Center for Trauma-Informed Care, dedicating her life to being a voice for those still lost and still silent.  

Traveling the country to give speeches and work one on one with women in prisons and hospitals, Neen continues to transform her own life while helping others to embrace her motto “where there’s breath, there’s hope.” Today she has won numerous prestigious awards as she spreads her motto "Where there is Breath there is Hope"  Click the link to vierw her documentary trailer of her journey entitled "Healing Neen" released in March 2010, Screened at film festivals, colleges, law schools, churches, the United Nations...Workshops on trauma, mental health, substance abuse, adult corrections, juvenile justice and social services.  www.healingneen.com for DVD and contact info and To request Tonier “Neen” Cain to speak at your event, contact speaker@healingneen.com
