Strong Mom, Safe Kids

For mothers who have experienced abuse in intimate relationships and their children ages 5-18

The program focuses on the relationship between mothers and their children, recognizing that when a mother experiences intense times in her life, it is difficult to heal and also tune into their children’s needs. The group provides children and youth with the opportunity to move beyond what happened in their family in a safe and therapeutic way. By supporting mothers and helping them understand the trauma through their children’s eyes, they are better able to provide the ongoing emotional support their children need. Meals will be provided from 5:30-6:00pm. To participate, it is a requirement that mothers are living apart from the person who abused them.
