The Occupational Therapy team at Barrier Free Living’s Secret Garden domestic violence program kicked off 2017 with a host of weekly empowerment groups for consumers, from Money Matters to Self Care.

The monthly cycle of groups include Creatively Empowered, Money Matters, Beauty and Self Care, and Movement and Fitness.

The groups provide a “safe and open environment for participants to learn steps to improve self-esteem and stress management skills. It allows clients to gain confidence while expressing their feelings and discussing their experiences with a group of peers.”

The Secret Garden offers counseling, support groups & safety planning for survivors of domestic violence with disabilities.
