JFCS can help you in finding shelter at our Charlotte’s Place apartment (when available), at no cost to you. Housing capacity is one adult and one child under 18. If the apartment is occupied, we will connect you with shelter/housing resources.
COUNSELING & SUPPORT GROUPS
Project SARAH provides counseling for victims of domestic abuse and their children. Counseling for domestic abuse victims is confidential and discreet. We also offer SARAH Supports, a domestic violence support group that enables participants to make connections and share their feelings with like-minded peers. To request counseling services or to learn more about upcoming support groups, please complete a Request Service E-Form and a member of our counseling department will reach out to you.
BUILDING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS & PACKING FOR COLLEGE OUTREACH PROGRAMS
Building Healthy Relationships is an outreach program provided to area public schools, synagogues, and parent organizations to promote healthy friendships and dating relationships and to raise awareness of the dangers of abusive teen relationships. A mission of the program is to educate teenagers about creating healthy relationships so that they themselves do not become victims or perpetrators of domestic abuse. Packing for College is a program designed to prepare college-bound students with tools and knowledge needed to keep safe when away at school. We also help to train professionals in our area (such as medical and dental practitioners) to recognize red flags of abuse and provide resources.
