What is the Women’s Empowerment Group?
The Women’s empowerment group is a weekly group for women who have or are currently experiencing violence or abuse in their intimate partner relationships. The group provides women an opportunity to explore the violence in their lives in a safe and confidential group setting.
What do I need to do to Start the Group?
Women can feel free to join in at any time. You just show up. Whatever commitment you make to attend the group belongs to you, and you may quit and join again any time.
Do I have to Share in Group?
Though you are encouraged to share in the discussion, you are not required to do so. Many women do not speak until they have attended a couple of group meetings an their comfort level is raised.
Is there Childcare Available?
Advocates for Family Peace provides a support group for the children of women attending the Women’s Empowerment Group.
When and Where does the Group Meet?
The group meets on Tuesdays from 5:00pm-6:30 at the Advocates for Family Peace office.
