 Drop-in Support Groups

If you are new to SASS groups, our drop-in groups are a great place to start! Come have conversations, discuss group topics, and find support from others who have had similar experiences. Due to the nature of the conversations that often happen during group, no late arrivals permitted. Our door locks about 5 minutes after group start time.

WORKSHOP STARTING LATE AUGUST 2019!

Change Your Narrative, Change Your life!

Sexual Assault Support Services is offering a workshop to learn and explore how our internal narrative impacts our ability to find peace within ourselves.

We, by design, are story tellers. This is how we make sense of the world and our place in it. Sometimes our stories create unrest within ourselves. This workshop will look at the stories we tell ourselves, determine which ones work for us and which ones need a revision. We will explore how to revise them in a way that keeps their truth, yet allows us to be the primary problem solver rather than a victim.

  • Workshop begins Monday August 26th and will run for 10 weeks, ending October 28th.
  • Meets at SASS every Monday from 1 to 2:30 pm.
  • Workshop is FREE and open to women 18+ who have experienced unwanted sexual contact at any point in their past.
  • Registration Required. Contact Rebecca supportgroup@sass-lane.org or 541-484-9791 Ex 315 for more information. Limited space available. Spots will fill up quickly!
  • SASS services are always free!

“The Lakota speak of these stories as our nagi. They believe we are surrounded by a swarm of stories that influenced us and made us who we are today. Nagi includes both the stories and the tellers of those stories. It is our legacy. To understand our suffering, we must tap into our nagi.”

Group schedules are subject to change based on needs of community. Please contact SASS to insure you have the most current schedule @ 541-484-9791. SASS services, including groups, are always FREE.

Groups are for folks 18 years plus, and are held at SASS unless otherwise stated in description. We are located at  591 W 19th Ave. Eugene Or. 97401 (Corner of 19th & Jefferson)

*Children are not permitted to attend group with you* 

Why are children are not allowed? Research tells us having our children present while we are processing trauma may not be healthy for them. Also, their presence can interrupt the flow of group for folks in attendance. Because of this, we cannot allow children in group.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause!  

We hope one day to have the funding to provide childcare for group participants, however at this time we do not have the resources to provide this service.

SASS Services are always FREE – Donations gladly accepted!

Looking for a different type of group than what’s listed here?

Please contact us! We have other groups for various populations in the planning stages, and we’d like to know what folks are looking for.

In addition to groups, SASS also provides free, individual counseling services. For more information, visit our counseling page.
