The Women's Center offers a wide variety of weekly, monthly, and occasional support groups. Some of our groups are open to all women, while others are open only to women dealing with a specific issue (such as child sexual abuse, addictions, or a physical illness). Our group programming fosters healing, provides support, assists in developing community, and offers information so that women may make informed decisions.
All offerings at the Women's Center are FREE. All who identify as women are welcome. Free childcare can usually be arranged if requested in advance.
