In addition to individual counseling, we provide residents with group counseling while at the shelter. Group sessions cover a variety of topics relevant to youth and may include:

  • Recovery from physical, sexual, and/or mental abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Teen pregnancy prevention
  • STD awareness
  • Self-esteem
  • Anger management/assertion training
  • Developing communication skills
  • Pet therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Sand tray therapy
  • Remedial reading
  • Computer literacy
  • Life skills


Group sessions provide residents with the opportunity to share their experience and to learn from others in similar situations.
