“We believe every person knows what is best for them; they are the expert on their own lives. We are here to help them do what they feel is best for them.”
FIERCE - Designed to promote freedom, inspiration, education, resilience, collective support, and empowerment. This group covers a series of session topics, which are organized into four different modules: self-esteem, assertiveness, other life skills and domestic/intimate partner violence. Sessions are held twice a month throughout the year. This group is free and available to any female-identified person in the community, but registration is required.
Groups take place at our Resource Center. At this time, groups are only open to female identified individuals. Childcare is not provided but we may be able to assist with transportation costs for attendance to the group. Please discuss this with the Outreach Worker upon registration.
Please see the Group Calendar below for group details.
