Community Support Program

DASO’s Community Support Program provides one-on-one support for women* 16+ living in Oxford County who have been impacted by intimate-partner violence (IPV). This program provides 5-10 sessions of empowering psychoeducational and emotional support with DASO’s Community Support Worker. Through this program, you’ll receive assistance with developing coping skills, reaching your goals, setting boundaries, and learning about abuse.

This program also offers an 8wk Group for women* 16+ living in Oxford County who have been impacted by IPV. Our Women’s Group offers impactful discussion and psychoeducation around abuse, coping skills, trauma, self-care, and healthy relationships. Connection with other survivors in a safe and supportive environment can be a meaningful part of the healing journey.
