Why social support groups for women are so important

CFCA mothers groups“Social groups are critical in helping women recover from the trauma of domestic violence. Social groups rebuild that lost sense of self and create a supportive, open forum in which to heal.”

This quote is from Susan Miller, chief executive officer of Rose Brooks Center, which provides domestic violence services and programs for families in the U.S.

Not only do these groups help women find ways to improve their economic circumstances, but they also empower women to address present challenges ñ including domestic violence, among other issues.
