The program focuses on the relationship between mothers and their children, recognizing that when a mother experiences intense times in her life, it is difficult to tune into her children’s needs. The group provides children with the opportunity to move beyond what happened in their family in a safe and therapeutic way. By supporting mothers and helping them understand the trauma through their children’s eyes, they are better able to provide the ongoing emotional support their children need.


The winter 2021 group will begin on January 20.


This program is for:

  • Mothers who have experienced abuse in intimate relationships 
  • Their children, ages 6-18, who have witnessed 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

This winter we are offering a 10-week virtual group program starting on January 20.  The group will provide opportunities for families to interact together and also provide smaller groups for mothers, older children, and younger children to engage in the week’s topic in age-appropriate ways. 


If you are interested in participating in our Strong Moms, Safe Kids program, please call The Strong Moms, Safe Kids Coordinator at
