Domestic Violence Education – the material range includes the cycle of violence, individual types of abuse, and the progression and intensity of continued abuse. The goal of the material is to empower women to recognize that domestic violence follows a pattern of control and to empower women with options and information to break the cycle.

Peer Support Group – Woman’s peer support group. Some are guided support and some the women in attendance determine the topics and discussion flow.

3 Client guidance and education using goal setting as a means of changing direction in their lives and becoming self-sufficient.  The Case Manager provides guidance in identifying the needs required to reach individual goals; recording the requirements; assessing the level of success toward meeting the requirements; and refining the actions and goals as the client progresses. The guidance provides a written record of the client’s successes and thereby enforces their self-esteem when recognizing their progress. This is primarily for residents and Transitional Housing clients, but we provide many resource referrals over the telephone for non-resident clients as well.
