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.

RISE UP & BLOOM  is our group for survivors of sexual and domestic violence and intimate partner violence. This group will meet on the second and fourth week of each month at 6p.


MENDING MINDS is our group for teens experiencing dating violence. This group will meet on the first and third week of every month at 6p.

Groups are currently hosted on google meet but will be shifting to in-person this Spring.
