Support Groups

Support groups are free services facilitated by advocates (not counselors) who plan activities and discussions focusing on self-care and self-reflection. Discussions do not involve trauma-processing, sharing of stories/specific details, asking for legal/criminal justice advice, or behavior-modifying therapies.

For more information about support groups, please call 816-531-0233

Who can attend?

Our support groups are open to survivors of sexual assault and abuse only.  Individuals must be 18+ years of age and either live in or the assault/abuse needs to have occurred in our service area (Cass, Clay, Platte, Jackson, Johnson, Wyandotte). Cab vouchers are available for anyone who cannot attend in-person due to lack of transportation.
