LGBTQ+ Survivors of Sexual Violence Support Group

Alachua County Victim Services & Rape Crisis Center is offering a support group for LGBTQ+ survivors of sexual violence. The group allows survivors of sexual violence to connect and begin exploring ways to heal in a safe and supportive environment. The group is available to survivors that identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community and is open to all gender identities and gender expressions. The group begins meeting on Thursday, May 10, 2018 and will meet weekly for ten weeks.

"Many LGBTQ+ survivors of intimate partner violence do not come forward or seek out services for several reasons, including fear of not being believed, being unsure of what inclusive services are available, and discrimination,” said Victim Advocate Therapist Jennifer Heard. “With this group, we aim to create a safe, inclusive space for all survivors that will allow them to connect with one another and begin reclaiming their strength through shared experiences."
