he W.O.M.A.N., Inc. 24-hour support line offers support via peer counseling, safety planning, and referrals for needed resources. Very often our support line is used as a safe space for survivors to openly share details of their lives including the abuse they survive. As peer counselors, our role is to support them. Many times a survivor just needs someone to listen without judging, to help them better understand their experience, and to validate their feelings and choices.
On our support line, we also connect with family and friends of survivors. Seeing someone you love be harmed is difficult and often times, a survivor’s loved ones don’t know what to do or how to best support the survivor in their life. It is also common for people who love a survivor to experience a great deal of emotional distress. We are here for you as well as the survivor you love.
During drop-in support times, survivors of domestic violence, their friends and/or their family members can meet with a trained advocate for in-person support. In this meeting, we provide peer counseling, safety planning, and referrals. Additionally, survivors, their friends and/or family can learn more about W.O.M.A.N., Inc. services such as our peer support groups, Latina Program, and therapy.
Drop-in support sessions are offered in English and Spanish:
For many survivors of domestic violence, individual psychotherapy provides an excellent environment for healing and growth. We offer both ongoing individual therapy and family therapy for survivors with their children. Therapy services are offered in English and Spanish and are provided by trained MFT Interns and Trainees who are supervised by a licensed psychotherapist. Low-cost weekly sessions are based on a sliding scale.
If you are interested in exploring therapy as an option, please drop by for a free consultation meeting in English or Spanish:
The Latina Program offers in-depth case management to Spanish-speaking survivors of domestic violence, and works to support survivors in a culturally appropriate setting. Working collaboratively with a team member, the survivor creates short and long-term goals designed to help overcome the obstacles preventing them from creating a life free of violence.
For more information about the Latina Program, or to talk with a member of the team, simply come to the office during our drop-in support hours:
