HEAL (Human Earth Animal Liberation Mission) first appeared at UW in 2002 as a registered student organization and later became COPE Ministries – a registered nonprofit church in the state of Washington. HEAL is headed by the Reverend Angela Smith who is a survivor of the infamous Provo Canyon School.  The HEAL Mission is an effort in victim and consumer advocacy and has been since 2002. Over the course of two decades, Rev Angela Smith has built a large program database, assisted program survivors in reporting crimes, and brought awareness to the abuses of the troubled teen industry.
