JFS SV is partnering with Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence to offer a confidential, FREE support group for women who are in abusive relationships.
 
In this support group, you will learn how to:
  • Communicate effectively.            
  • Create and participate in healthy relationships.
  • Recognize abusive behaviors.       
  • Build self-acceptance and self-confidence.
  • Develop a safety plan.
  • Create a better life for you and your family.
  • Recognize the signs of trauma in yourself and your children. 
  • Gain value from the experiences of other women who are handling intimate partner issues similar to your own
