Hope Harbor*, Lotus*, and Ampersand are collaborating to provide a space for survivors to build community, support each other, share experiences, and build resilience.
We know those who have experienced sexual violence can feel alone and isolated, believing there are not others who would understand. While everyone’s story is different, we believe there is power in community. We invite those who identify as survivors** to join us for our weekly Survivors’ Support Group. There is no attendance policy (so you can come whenever you can or need it) and there is no curriculum (so you won’t feel like you are missing something big when you can’t make it).
This group will meet via Zoom on Monday evenings at 7p (Eastern time) / 6p (Central Time).
A staff member of one of the partnering agencies will moderate the group to incite discussion and ensure the safe space is being honored.
This is a virtual group that will occurr via Zoom!
In order to respect the confidentiality of all participants, please attend the retreat in a private space without kids, partners, and other people in the room.
You will need access to internet and a device with a microphone and camera (because you will want to be able to see the materials, a
computer or tablet works best!)
This group is for survivors of sexual violence and over the age of 18.
At this time, we are unable to offer language access and accommodation. When this changes, we will make it known.
*Hope Harbor and Lotus are other rape crisis centers that serve the western and south central Kentucky areas. All three centers are held to the same state and federal standards and regulations regarding privacy and confidentiality. Link to their websites here:

**What does this mean? Sexual violence experiences fall on a spectrum, and includes harassment, unwanted conversations or pictures, assault, and rape. No matter what your experience is we believe you, your voice matters, and you are welcome in this group.
