Strong Moms, Safe Kids Group

Strong Moms, Safe Kids is a family program for mothers and their children This program is for:

• Mothers who have experienced abuse in intimate relationships

• Their children, ages 4-18, who have been affected by abuse in their homes

• Mothers and children living apart from the person who abused them

• Families of all cultures: those not comfortable with English can have an interpreter provided for them


Strong Moms, Safe Kids lasts for 10 weeks and families enjoy both food and fun. The group provides time for families to learn about the impact of abuse together, and also provides smaller groups for mothers, youth and younger children so that they can learn more about healing from abuse at an age-appropriate level.
