Projects Groups Workshops

The Women's Center offers a number of support groups, workshops, and classes for women. Some of our groups are open to all women, while others are open only to women dealing with a specific issue (i.e. child sexual abuse, addictions, etc.) Our group programming fosters healing, provides support, assists in developing community, and offers information so that women may make informed decisions.

Each month, a calendar of our groups is posted on our website.

If you're interested in leading a new group, please email Judy at
