Children's Services 1 2 3

 

Children’s Groups are conducted concurrently with other support and educational groups. Child Advocates provide children aged 3 years and over with a safe environment where they can receive support and express their feelings through play, art, music and dance. Child Advocates also assist children in developing safety plans.

 

The Child Advocates act as liaisons with the schools where the children attend classes. They provide a safe place for children to interact with other children who have witnessed domestic violence in their homes. Activities include a monthly celebration hosted by a long-time volunteer who provides a cake, refreshments, and gifts as appropriate. Activities include field trips to movies, museums, and area parks and are coordinated with sister shelters to include their program participants.
