Support Groups

Although each survivor’s experience is unique, it can be especially helpful to talk to others who have been or are going through situations similar to your own.  The groups provide a safe environment as well as support and healing from the abuse you have experienced in your life.

Like all SHC services, the groups are free and confidential.  We will make every effort to provide childcare on site for children 3 years old and up.

For more information on any of our support groups, please call the HelpLine at (734) 995-5444.
