Domestic Violence Support Group
Our domestic violence support group will go through a variety of information throughout the meeting. Therefore, we suggest bringing a notebook and pen or pencil to write with for taking notes.
Attendees are free to talk about past or current experiences that have occurred. Everything mentioned in these meetings are confidential. Open to all community members, the group encourages growth and questions. In addition, talking is known to be an effective form of therapy.
Trained staff members present can discuss red flags, safety, and action plans in any one meeting.
In conclusion, it is the YWCA’s goal to help people feel themselves again. It’s important to know that help is always available. All you have to do is ask.
If you or someone you know has experienced domestic violence or sexual assault, call the YWCA 24/7 hotline with any questions or concerns regarding help. Check out the Wise Options information page here.
Feel free to call our Wise Options staff at (570) 323-8167 for more information.
