How We Can Help
Children are always affected by the abuse they witness. Feelings of fear, anger, and guilt can affect their development and lead to behavioral problems. Often children learn to model the violent behavior that they are seeing in their own lives.
Our dedicated child advocates help ease the transition for children coming to shelter. We spend one-on-one time with the children, supplemented by group activities so the child feels comfortable in their new surroundings. We also offer support groups and programs for kids & youth when needed.
