“Sit and Chat” with Onika Mars

This is a support group for female survivors of domestic violence and abuse where they are invited to sit and chat in a safe environment and we share our experiences with each other so that we can encourage, empower and provide the much-needed genuine support.

Survivors obtain professional counselling, valued advice, and guidance as it relates to matters affecting them. The organization has a core of volunteer support persons in the persona of pastors, counsellors, nurses, psychologists, and survivors/overcomers. A minimum of 25 women is usually in attendance at each support group meeting.
