Peaceful Paths Outreach program conducts empowerment-based, open enrollment adult support groups that meet at various times throughout the week. These groups are safe, supportive, and confidential spaces that allow women to share their experiences with other women, gain understanding about power and control in relationships, and learn about the traits of healthy relationships.
Child and teen groups run concurrently with many of our adult support groups and you will receive information about arranging to participate in these services at the Intake Group. Moms bringing their children to groups will also have the opportunity to meet with the Outreach Children’s Program staff prior to and throughout their child’s participation.
Alachua County participants need to attend an intake group prior to starting the support groups. At the Intake, you will have an opportunity to meet our support group facilitator, fill out some paperwork, and together you will be able to figure out which of our services best suit your needs and schedule. You also may receive referrals to other community resources.
Intake Groups are held two times a week at our Outreach office, and no appointment is necessary. You may choose whichever is most convenient for you, and the schedule is as follows:
- 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
(child care is provided)
- 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Please arrive on time and prepare to stay for two hours to complete the Intake Group. Anyone arriving late may be asked to come back another time, as the full two hours are needed to cover everything.
