Groundwork Domestic Violence Program

Where Victims Become Survivors

Central to Groundwork’s mission is the conviction that victims have a right; to realize their human dignity; to regain control of their lives; to develop renewed ways of living that promote harmony and well-being within their families; to exercise their legal rights with and through the support of an informed community. Groundwork provides a 24 hour hotline, emergency shelter, individual and group counseling (adults & children), legal and medical advocacy, prevention education, and community presentations.
