Moving Forward Program
Moving Forward is a community-based group program offered throughout the year that helps children, youth and their mothers heal from the hurt of living with woman abuse in their family.
It is a free, voluntary program that offers separate, yet complimentary, group experiences for children and their mothers.
Children and their mothers learn:
- to heal from the impact of abuse
- to deal with family changes after abuse
- the importance of honouring feelings
- tips on safety planning
- ways to handle problems.
The Moving Forward program runs approximately 10 weeks with one 1.5 hour session per week.
If referring family has children outside the target age group, there is a wait list and another program will commence when appropriate number of referrals are received.
Financial assistance can be offered for transportation and child care.
