OUR SERVICES

​

We offer long term support to those living with the dynamics of domestic violence. 

 

Support groups, drop in services, telephone helpline and court accompaniment are structured to promote a sense of belonging and provide warmth, affirmation, and tangible aid.

 

Our youth outreach program speaks to prevention and warning signs of abuse while dating. 

 

We are not a shelter. However, we do act as a liaison, victim advocate, support and networking resource for those in difficulty.
