Domestic violence impacts women physically, emotionally and socially. Women who are subject to abuse and/or control within intimate partnerships are often isolated; this group allows women with similar experiences to come together in a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental setting.
We offer education and support for women of all ages who have been impacted by domestic violence. Through curriculum and guided discussions, women explore a variety of related issues designed to offer the education and support necessary to increase their safety and overall well-being.
The Children’s Domestic Violence Education and Support Group takes place in conjunction with the Women’s Domestic Violence Education and Support Group. The group provides children a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental forum in which to receive support and education at the same time as their female parent or caregiver.
Children who are exposed to domestic violence, whether directly or indirectly, may be negatively impacted. These children may demonstrate guilt, depression, anxiety, fear, aggressive behaviors, school disruptions, isolation or other concerning emotions and behaviors.
Through discussions, art and creative play, children ages 5 and older explore a variety of issues. Children will learn about domestic violence, how to be safe, not to take on the responsibility of the behavior of others, and self-care. Childcare is provided for children under age 5.
