"[I know] that nothing is wrong with me, that I am not the only one, that you can change how you see yourself, and by changing yourself, you find your voice."  -survivor
WISE connections

We are excited to share that we have a number of opportunities this spring that offer space where survivors can be in community together with people who share common experiences and interests. If you are interested in participating in any of these groups, talk to an advocate to learn more.

WISE writing is in collaboration with Joni Cole, founder of the Writer's Center. It offers a time to deepen our understanding of ourselves and each other through written and personal experience. No previous writing experience is required. To learn more, connect with Pam .

WISE art is in partnership with Deb Steele, an artist and art therapist. If you enjoy creating art, expressing yourself creatively, and want to try something new, please join us. No experience or ability required. To learn more, connect with Bethany .

WISE horses is a collaboration with Moonrise Farm. Horses invite us to be calm, honest, and present in the moment. No riding or equine experience is necessary. Pre-registration is required because space is limited. To learn more, connect with Bailey .

Youth group in partnership with Kim Knowlton-Young, is a therapeutic group for adolescents who have experienced some form of sexual violence or harassment. It is engaging while providing young people the opportunity to understand what has happened and to join together to determine what they want next for their lives. To learn more, connect with Sophie
