Victim Services support group starting back up
February 14, 2017
Boundary County Victim Services has experienced a short hiatus in their support group due to a lack of participants. It is their hope that with new word of mouth and sharing on social media they can start it up again!

Support Group is an interactive group session that may be non-directed, topic oriented or informational and educational, facilitated by an advocate from their program.

Support group services, which differ from professional therapy group, provide support that addresses the needs identified by those attending the group session which includes, but is not limited to:
  a. Safety planning;
  b. Active listening;
  c. Problem solving;
  d. Addressing needs identified by those attending the group session;
  e. Information about available legal options; and
  f. Information about available community resources.

Boundary County Victim Services will be re-starting group meetings at noon Wednesday, March 1, and continue the first Wednesday of each month, depending on attendance.

Meetings are held at the Bonners Ferry United Methodist Church, although there is no religious affiliation in the organization. This is simply a safe and accommodating meeting place graciously offered to us through United Methodist.

Free childcare is provided on site.

Your feedback is important, and although there is no "perfect" schedule for anyone, the time and dates set are what they are able to offer at this time. Please contact (208) 267-5211 for further information and to let them know you'll be there.
