Domestic Abuse Support Group
YWCAMC Resource Center
Location: 114 Church Street, Salinas, CA 93901
Domestic abuse is severely misunderstood in our culture. This fact makes finding support difficult. If you join this group, you will find a physically, mentally, and emotionally safe place to share your experiences and to process how your past or current abuse is affecting your life. To honor where you are in the healing process, you will never be required to share. The group members with help each other to regain their confidence and self-worth, and hopefully help each other learn how to take the next steps to put an end to the violent situation that they may find themselves in.
To register for group, call or email Rhonda Burchett at 831-422-8602 or email@example.com
. Preregistration is not required, but encouraged. Support group is free and confidential.
