  • Support Groups
    • We offer several support groups to the community. Our support groups provide a safe, confidential environment for survivors who are women or on the feminine spectrum to meet others who have faced similar experiences and gain knowledge and tools for empowerment. These groups are drop-in, offer childcare for their attendees, and are free of charge. If you are a male survivor, please contact us as we want to provide support and are in the process of developing groups for men.
