women's support group

BWSS is thrilled to announce the Healing Connections support group has resumed in person meetings for the first time since 2020.

At BWSS Support Groups are intrinsic to empowerment and empowerment is at the heart of healing from the oppression of abuse and violence. One of the very first programs BWSS offered, for over 40 years, Healing Connections has provided a safe place to connect with each other in order to alleviate isolation, share information, raise awareness and heal.

This drop in support group meets every Tuesday at our confidential office from 12pm to 2pm. The group is for women, trans women, transfeminine, and women with trans experience who are dealing with the impacts of past or current experiences of gender-based violence. Folks are welcome to attend when they need to access support, information, and/or a safe place to share.

When the group meets, trained facilitators support discussion ranging from:

  • Criminal system
  • Power and control
  • Cycle of violence
  • Resources
  • Coping tools
  • Emotional Support
  • Building Connections
