One-On-One Peer Counseling
We strive to support survivors of domestic violence in a strength-based and trauma-informed way. Through education, information and advocacy, participants have the opportunity to gain skills for empowerment and emotional, mental and physical safety so that they may live self-directed lives and reach their full potential.
Trained domestic violence advocates offer a non-judgmental environment for participants to talk about their experiences and weigh their options. Participants are supported to understand the dynamics of abuse and its’ impact on their lives, nurture self-esteem, set healthy boundaries, develop safe coping skills, assess risks and create a safety plan to address their emotional, mental, spiritual and/or physical safety . Information, resources and referrals to other agencies are available as needed.
