Rowan House New Outreach Program: Peer Support

Our Outreach team is piloting a new Peer Support group for former residents, outreach clients, and those who have participated in the Healthy Relationships group.  This was developed in recognition that friendships and support networks are vital to the enhancement of women living abuse-free lives. The Peer group is overseen by staff, facilitated by group members, and runs bi-weekly over the course of 10 sessions. Success would see participants develop and sustain new relationships and connections, and are able to move forward collectively to support each other beyond the 10 sessions. The first two of these have been well-received, with full participation of 9 attendees.
