Support groups provide a space for survivors to meet in a safe and compassionate environment, on a regular schedule, to exchange information and share techniques for problem solving and managing daily life.  

NELCWIT typically offers a range of support groups. These have included sewing classes, art groups, community gardening projects, survivors’ discussion groups, LGBTQ+ groups, yoga classes, and mindfulness groups. Regardless of the topic or demographic, each group is supported by NELCWIT staff who are available to provide resources and referrals for services as needed.

Support groups were paused while in-person services were suspended during COVID-19. This page will be updated as opportunities to join or re-join support groups become available. In the meantime, feel free to contact us for more information!

Almost twenty-seven years ago, NELCWIT was a lifesaver for me and my three kids, and none of us have forgotten. I'm just sharing this with you to let you know what a huge impact the courageous and dedicated women of NELCWIT, and the vital, top-notch services they provide, have had across time. I can't, and wouldn't want to, imagine my life without your grace and wisdom.
