A Woman's Place (AWP) counseling services are free, private, and confidential, and availiable to residential and non-residential victims of domestic violence. Our counselors and advocates provide individual and group counseling to clients experiencing domestic violence.
Clients receive an immediate response to their call and are referred for services that are specific to their immediate needs. Our counseling and support services are based on each individual's circumstances and can include individual counseling or support groups.
AWP offers support groups that meet on a weekly basis in four different locations across the county. Clients can gain access to these support groups by calling our hotline, 800.220.8116. These support groups offer participants:
- A peer-supported environment
- A decrease in isolation
- An increase in resources
- Support services such as food and store vouchers
Children's Counseling Program
AWP also provides services for emotional support for children. Individual and group sessions are available for ages 3-18. The Children’s Program emphasizes the importance of restoring the connection between the non-abusing parent/caregiver and the children in the home. Services are short term and geared around the needs of the child. Call for more information about emotional support sessions, parental guidance or our seasonal programs such as yoga, art groups and recreational events.
AWP also offers counseling for clients that experience abuse later in life, who are age 50 and older. For more information on abuse later in life, click here.
