The P.A.R.E. program will begin registering participants for its 4th Empowerment Group. The purpose of this program is to provide a space where Latina survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault can continue their healing process, develop self-esteem and self-sufficiency, and facilitate a community-level response to promote healthy communities and families. Survivors can be powerful agents of change in our community. Through these empowerment groups, we build leaders to take charge of the women’s rights movement and use their voices and lived experiences to improve service provision for Latino survivors of abuse.
