Join Our Circle

The Healing Project

We are in the process of forming culturally and trauma-informed therapy groups located in Ward 7 and Ward 8 that will work with the community to help survivors heal from their traumatic experiences as a result of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse.

Join Our Circle


We will seek to provide transitional housing for up to a year for a limited amount of survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse who are current participants in The Safe Sister’s Circle’s Legal or Support Groups programs.
