About Our Groups

We provide support groups for survivors of sexual assault and for their loved ones who may be struggling with their own feelings. Support groups are offered to women, men, teens, and are facilitated by State of California Certified Sexual Assault Counselors. Our groups offer an opportunity to:

  • Share your experience in a safe environment
  • Hear about others’ experiences
  • Explore ways to address the impact of the abuse/assault
  • Learn strategies to help you respond to the demands of day-to-day living

Current Groups Schedule

Women Survivors of Sexual Assault

(folks outside the gender binary are welcome)

For adult women and nonbinary survivors, we provide a Drop-In Support Group on Monday nights from 6-7pm. at Verity. Having a place to come, where you are understood and you can listen to others as they share their struggles and successes, can be an opportunity to connect. You can just sit and listen if you don’t want to talk. It may feel easier to be alone, but it might also be nice to have someone understand. Mondays, 6 PM -7 PM at Verity: 835 Piner Road, Suite D, Santa Rosa. We do not meet on holidays. For more information, please call us at 707-545-7270 or check the calendar.
