GROUP SUPPORT SERVICES
Many people who are impacted by sexual violence find it helpful to share their feelings with others in a group setting. If you are interested in participating in a support group or self-help group, please contact our office to find out about the current availability. By calling the office and letting us know you are interested, you may place your name on a list so you can be contacted at a future time when a sufficient number of participants have expressed interest. Group services will also be advertised publicly and on our website as they become available. The focus of the groups will be largely determined by community needs, so please contact us with your suggestions.
