Outreach Services

We offer day and evening support group meeting times, plus Information Sessions, and more. Support groups give participants the skills to recognize the signs of domestic violence, understand the barriers to leaving, and gain education about available legal resources available to domestic violence victims. If you are looking to talk with others who have been affected by unhealthy relationships or need help with an action plan, our trained staff will help you learn, heal, and empower yourself to create health/safety in or out of your relationship.

Counseling services are offered in both English and Spanish
