DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROGRAM

We offer a culturally sensitive, Spanish language program to help victims of abuse. It provides individual advocacy-based counseling and a support group for victims of abuse.

 

Some of the services provided at this time include:

  • Support group Las Rosas  – This is a support group for women who have been victims of abuse. It gives them an opportunity to share their experiences and learn new skills and independence.

  • Referrals to services at HAVEN and linkages with their shelter

  • Interpretation and translation in accessing community resources

  • Referrals to legal services when needed, especially those needing to apply for immigrant visas.

 

Non-Violence Group for Men

We offer a Non-batterer’s educational group for people presenting abusive behaviors. Groups usually meet once a week for 1 ½  hours. Most referrals come from the Court, and others come from recommendations by others. Men may participate in 26 or 42 weeks depending on the charges and the assessment.
