The Avalon Center offers weekly support groups for women and children who have been victims or witnesses of domestic violence or sexual assault. The groups give participants the opportunity to form bonds with, and obtain support from, other victims in similar circumstances, as well as the opportunity to learn more about the issues. All Avalon Center victims' services are free and confidential. For more information, please call the office at 456-0747 or the 24 hr. crisis line at 1-800-641-3434.
