Our Home’s Family Crisis Network is starting a virtual support group for victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in Mercer County (OH). The first virtual meeting is slated for June 10th and plans are to hold sessions on the 2nd Thursday of each month afterward.
“These virtual group sessions will provide survivors of abuse with an opportunity to connect and share personal experiences and feelings, discuss coping strategies, and find comfort and support during both the crisis and the recovery that follows” Deb Simon-Heinfeld, Our Home’s Marketing & Development Coordinator explained.
The virtual support group will meet live, on-line and be led by qualified victims’ advocates. These sessions will be accessible on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Note: Because Family Crisis Network services are confidential, support group sessions will not be recorded.
