Group Supports

STRONG MOMS, SAFE KIDS

Strong Moms, Safe Kids is a special 10-week group for mothers who have experienced abuse in intimate relationships and their children ages 5-18 who have witnessed abuse in their homes. The group is provided free of charge and supports these families in the healing process and in regaining their confidence and skills. 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.

To participate, it is a requirement that mothers are living apart from the person who abused them.

SMSK provides opportunities for families to interact together in a large group format then also provides separate smaller groups for mothers, older children, and younger children. The smaller groups allow participants to engage in the week’s topic in developmentally appropriate ways and with peers of the same age.

This group is for:

  • Mothers AND their children (ages 5-18)
  • Mothers living apart from the person who abused them (required)
  • Families of all cultures: those not comfortable with English can have an interpreter provided for them

Details:

  • Weekly on Wednesdays from 5:30-8:00pm
  • Running for 10 weeks, April 24 – June 26, 2024
  • Meal provided from 5:30-6:00pm

Registration for our Spring 2024 session is now open. Please contact intake at 519.743.6333 to enroll or email jdegazon@caminowellbeing.ca
