Individual Counseling • Advocacy • Group Counseling • Mental Health • Support Groups • Sexual Assault • Sexual Violence Services
Mujeres provides support for adult survivors of sexual violence, both Spanish and English speaking, at many stages in their recovery. Staff also work with significant others such as parents of children who have been sexually abused, partners or adult family members of survivors. The goal of these services is to ensure that survivors of any form of sexual violence receive all the necessary support and to assure them that they are not alone. The Sexual Assault Program offers counseling, both individual and group, as well as medical advocacy, legal advocacy, community education, professional training and therapy.
Mujeres provides survivors with short-term individual counseling, a 15-week educational group and an ongoing support group. Counseling sessions help reduce a survivor’s symptoms and offer stability. The ongoing group offers survivors the opportunity to share experiences with other survivors and to build a support system. A therapist is also available to work with survivors whose lives have been severely affected by sexual violence. The therapy can be short or long-term based on the clients’ needs.
