Safe Voices Family Support Groups!
The Safe Voices Family Support groups are for children and their non-offending parent/caregiver who’ve been exposed to domestic violence. The groups are free for families and snacks are provided. The groups are designed as safe, friendly, and fun outlets to help kids who have encountered violence to discuss their likes and dislikes, share ideas about problem solving, form healthy coping skills, and share hopes about the future.
Caregivers meet in a separate room to connect around their stories, concerns, and direct support.
There will be two sessions: one in Androsoggin County (starting April 1) and one in Franklin County (starting Feb. 26th) . For more information please call 1-800-559-2927.
