Support Groups

Finding healing through solidarity.

About Support Groups

Our support groups are facilitated by staff and trained volunteers to provide a safe space to survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence.


We currently run three groups: BLOOM, RISE, and EMBRACE.


BLOOM is our group for survivors of sexual violence and abuse.

RISE is our group for survivors of domestic violence and intimate partner violence.

EMBRACE is our group for friends, family, and loved ones of survivors.

Participants can sign-up below and a staff member will contact you to give you more info. Participants complete intake paperwork with staff.

Meetings for the remainder of 2021 are cancelled while staff restructures our support groups. If you need support, please call our 24/7 hotline at 540-886-6800. Thank you!

Please make sure to sign up your email and name below before joining so that the facilitators can contact you.
