Mahatma Gandi

What is Kid’s Club?

  • Kids’ club is a childcare program that provides strength-based, trauma informed support to children, ages 0 to 11 years, while their parent/guardian is attending domestic violence support groups or meeting with an advocate in our Domestic Violence Services.
  • Kid’s club is staffed by Child Advocate Interns who have received training on the needs of children who have experienced trauma.

Our Goal

  • To provide a safe space for children where they can express themselves, relax and have fun.
