Online Survivor Support Groups

Our Education and Outreach team offers Online Survivor Support Groups three times each year for victim-survivors of all genders who are looking for a supportive, safe community to process their experiences. Each cohort meets via Zoom in a series of ten 90-minute sessions. If you have experienced sexual/domestic violence and you are looking for a collective, welcoming space to connect with yourself and others as you continue on your healing journey, join us!

Our next round of Online Survivor Support Groups are:

  • Open-Gender Group: Tuesdays, October 10th – December 12th from 6pm-7:30pm Central time
