REclaim: Survivor Support Group

Are you a survivor of sexual assault looking for a community of support?

When sexual abuse happens, feelings of hopelessness can take over. But you are not alone. Reclaim is a support group for survivors of sexual assault to help survivors reclaim their voice, body, and hope. This will be a safe space for survivors to share practices that support their healing journey after sexual violence. 

The next Reclaim cohort will meet for 6 sessions twice a month.

4 ways survivors can
promote holistic health

A holistic approach ensures that all parts of us can thrive after experiencing trauma. We hope that this resource can help you support survivors wherever you are. For survivors in our community, we hope you experience healing, feel support from us as your community, and experience a thriving life after sexual assault. 


Whether you are a month or a decade into your healing journey, intentionality and consistency is the most important element of healing. The need for self-care and rejuvenation makes us human and should be embraced as a tool for working through trauma and bettering ourselves.
