Heal With Us Through 2022!

We’re stronger together.

Support Groups give clients a chance to share their stories with others who hold similar experiences so they can understand that they are not alone. These groups cover a range of topics that may include women empowerment, coping strategies, co-parenting with an abuser or the impact of trauma on relationships. We believe these groups can be an essential part of the healing process for some survivors. Support Groups are free and available to survivors but you must be registered to attend.

Support Groups start at 5:30pm and will end no later than 7:30pm (unless otherwise stated).
