Support Groups and Classes

ATTENTION COVID-19 UPDATE

Together, we're weathering the impacts of the COVID-19 public health crisis and remain committed to being responsive to the guidelines of the CDC. As we continue to follow official orders from Governor DeSantis, safety continues to be our primary focus for you and our staff. For the next two weeks, we have made some temporary restrictions to the day to day workings of the Women’s Refuge.

The residential program and counseling center will be “closed” to the public for the next two weeks. We are taking phone calls, counseling appointments, and scheduling, as normal. Counselors and support group leaders are set up to counsel from home via phone or Zoom video.

If we can be of help to you during this time, please contact our office at 772-770-4424.
