Suffering violence at the hands of a loved one is as damaging to the spirit as it is to the body. It is not uncommon for victims to blame themselves, even though the problem is not their fault. In support groups, victims learn about the cycle of violence and ways to break that cycle. They discover they are not alone in what they are feeling and they learn how to see the best in themselves and to take care of themselves emotionally. And, they gain the strength to help their children begin to heal, too.
Support groups meet on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:00 pm. Victims are encouraged to bring their children to participate in the childrens group activity. A shelter stay is not required in order to participate in the support groups, please call the Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-286-3407 for more information and location.
