Healing Programs

“’I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,’ says the Lord.”
–Jeremiah 30:17a

Healing Private Wounds provides the  following ten programs.

  1. Grow Groups:  The recovery  groups are held three times a year beginning the second week of September, January and April.  Each group lasts for 10 weeks.  There are separate groups for women, men, and teens. The facilitators are survivors of sexual abuse and are trained to lead these healing recovery groups.
  2. PUP Support Group:  Parents who Understand Pain Support Group is designed to help parents help children who have been abused. Parents need support as well.
  3. Children’s Programs:  These programs are geared for children ages four through twelve and teach young people that they have a right to privacy surrounding their own bodies. The can say “no”.
  4. Counseling Services:  We have licensed counselors on staff who make themselves available for individual or family counseling. There is no cost however donations are accepted.
  5. Life Skills Books Study:  Our book studies teach important communication skills that will help the participant to handle life’s challenges  more effectively. Participants will learn to set healthy boundaries and to say “no” plus much more. The book studies are open to the community.
  6. Workshops:  Healing Private Wounds workshops put the  participant in the shoes of the victim so they will better understand the challenges and  handicaps victims face. They also teach tools to help victims heal.
  7. Facilitator Training:  We provide an in service  training  for those survivors  who have healed significantly from sexual abuse and now desire to help other to start healing.
  8. Speakers and Presenters:  We can provide a speaker to present any number of topics on sexual abuse  including sexual abuse prevention and the healing process.
  9. Jail Ministry:  Government statistics report an overwhelmingly high number of prison inmates experience sexual abuse during their incarceration time.  We provide support services to inmates as needed.
  10. Online Support:    Our on line support allows us to assist those who live too far away to join in our programs.  And sometimes people just feel more comfortable speaking about their abuse via email instead of in person.  Regardless of the reason, we are here to support you.

Our goal is to provide support, information and compassion to promote healing from the numerous wounds incurred by sexual abuse. We also promote sexual abuse awareness and provide tools to others to help prevent sexual abuse.
