Community Support Groups
The YWCA offers one community-based support group. In a YWCA DV Support Group, participants have the opportunity to meet other survivors of violence, share their stories of abuse and healing and listen to others’ experiences. Being part of a support group is a powerful way to decrease isolation, complete in-depth safety planning and learn techniques to break the cycle of violence. Participants are welcome to attend groups whether they are still involved in their abusive relationship or if they are no longer with their partner. All services are confidential and free of charge. To find out more about the YWCA’s support groups or any of our other programs, please call our 24-hour Crisis & Information Line at (615) 242-1199.
