Non-Offending Caregivers Support Group:

 

If you have just discovered that your child or a child that you care about has been abused, it may feel as if your world is falling apart. But there is hope. Other caring adults have been where you are.

 

Dorchester Children's Center is pleased to offer the Non-Offending Caregiver's Support Group. This group is designed to help caregivers cope with a variety of complex issues brought about by a child's disclosure, from coping with the initial shock of the disclosure, to dealing with the impact of navigating the legal system. We at Dorchester Children's Center are committed to providing supportive services for children and their families as they find their way through trauma toward healing.
