SUPPORT GROUP & WORKSHOP INFORMATION

Why participate in support groups or workshops?

Peer support groups can be a valuable part of the healing process for many victims/survivors of domestic and/or sexual violence. Participants can find strength, support, and validation by connecting with one another in a safe and confidential environment. Groups promote self-empowerment, reduce isolation, and provide a space to build on existing strengths.

Support groups are facilitated by trauma-informed, confidential advocates and all groups are free of charge.

How do I register and join?

HAVEN’s Healthy Relationship Support Group is intended for adults who have experienced intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking and/or human trafficking. The facilitators are cultivating an environment that will be safe and confidential to share in while also mitigating the risk of participants retraumatizing themselves and each other.
