Small group of women in a counseling sessionOffering care, support and counseling when survivors need it the most.

DAWN’s support groups give survivors the opportunity to share their feelings with others with similar experiences. We provide specialized assistance for people who face other unique challenges in addition to their efforts to deal with violence, such as a women’s support group in Spanish. We also offer individualized mental health therapy and referrals to more intensive treatment.

In addition, DAWN is equally devoted to breaking this cycle of violence by offering programs and services to help children heal. We offer individual and group support to help them recover from the trauma so they can face life with a renewed sense of safety and hope. Without support, domestic abuse is a cycle that repeats for generations in the lives of the children who witness it and then grow up to perpetuate it on their own spouses, partners, children and others.
