Support Groups

The Support Group Program aims to use a holistic, relational approach to healing that creates a collective or supportive circle, fosters self-empowerment, and builds on existing strengths while acquiring new skills, and ultimately helps to create a community free from violence.

Monday Night Drop-In Group:

This group is every Monday that SASS is open from 7:00pm-8:30pm. It is available for self-identified women, ages 18+, who are survivors of sexual violence. This is a safe place to talk about experiences of sexual violence, process triggering events, work through emotions, or just speak about what is going on in your life.  The doors are open from 6:50-7:05pm for walk-ins.

Closed Groups:

For closed groups each participant completes an intake with a group facilitator and commits to attending each group of an 8-10 week series. Closed groups vary, such as journaling, art, self-care, etc. The populations served by these groups varies based on community needs.
