Virtual Healing: Family Service League’s Innovative Support Groups for Sexual Violence Survivors

FSL’s SAVE has established a series of online support groups for sexual violence survivors to provide a safe space to pursue trauma healing.

In an era where virtual connection is more crucial than ever, the Family Service League (FSL) has been making significant strides in providing critical support for survivors of sexual violence. 

Through their Sexual Violence Assistance, Education, and Empowerment (SAVE) program, they have established a series of online support groups designed to offer a safe space for survivors to process and heal from their traumas.

Virtual Support Group for Female Survivors of Sexual Violence

One of the notable initiatives under the SAVE program is the Virtual Support Group for Female Survivors of Sexual Violence. This group, available via Zoom, offers female-identifying survivors a confidential platform to share their experiences and seek solace amongst peers who understand their pain. The group meets twice weekly, with different attendees and group leaders for each session to ensure a diverse range of perspectives and experiences.

Virtual Support Group for LGBTQIA+ Identifying Survivors of Sexual Violence

In addition to this, FSL also acknowledges the unique challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ survivors of sexual violence. They have set up a separate support group specifically for individuals within this community, providing them with a judgment-free zone to talk about their experiences and find shared understanding. This group meets once weekly and is also free and confidential.
