More Than Survivors: Supportive Community Online

Embrace provides online meetings for survivors who have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence in an online chat format that is anonymous, secure and confidential. These meetings help survivors realize they are not alone and offer an encouraging and nonjudgmental environment to build connections to support healing. Family, friends, partners and other support people of survivors are welcome to attend too. The groups are completely confidential, respectful, and supportive community for all survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The group is facilitated and moderated by trained Embrace advocates and is safe for everyone.

The online chat group meets once a week on Tuesdays at 8pm from October 1 to December 17. Check the Events Calendar to find out if the group is meeting this week! To join the online chat group, go to: bit.ly/embracechat
