Domestic Abuse

What if those who have experienced abuse could enjoy community and restoration?

We walk alongside women who have been victims of domestic abuse to help them identify, recover from, and resist abusive relationships. We do this through support groups, healthy relationship classes, art therapy, and mentorship.

Programs

We walk alongside victims of domestic abuse to help them identify, recover from, and resist abusive relationships through support groups and classes for women and teens from abusive contexts.

Our partners include Crittenton (Foster Care Group Home) and Sheepfold (Faith-Based Transitional Living Home). Donna Mroz (Director of OC United’s Domestic Abuse Initiative) has written book called Overcoming Domestic Violence: There is Hope! We use this book as the basis for the program’s curriculum.

Support Groups

This loving and safe community is filled with compassionate leaders who will walk beside you in your journey toward hope and healing.
