Domestic violence impacts women physically, emotionally and socially. Women in violent relationships are often isolated; this group allows women with similar experiences to come together in a safe setting. We serve women of all ages who have been impacted by domestic violence. We offer education and support for women who have been impacted by domestic violence. Through curriculum and guided discussions women explore a variety of related issues.
Through group, women will have the education and support necessary to be safe from violence. Childcare is provided for children under age 5 and a children's group for children over age 5 is provided in conjunction with this group. Women and children are provided a light meal before groups begin. Groups are offered in English and Spanish. The Women and Children's groups are a collaborative effort with Family Service Rochester, the Women's Shelter and Olmsted County Child and Family Services.
There is no cost to attend group. The meal and childcare are also provided at no cost to attendees. Transportation assistance is also available.
