Youth

Children who are exposed to violence are more likely to exhibit behavioral and physical health problems including depression, anxiety, developmental delay, poor academic achievement, and violence towards peers.

Womenspace provides support for children when their parent or guardian accesses our services. At the Crisis & Support Center we provide a safe place to:

  • Involve children in age-appropriate activities
  • Develop social/emotional skills
  • Process confusing and difficult emotions
  • Learn how to develop healthy relationships
  • Respite care while safe parent attends groups, meetings and classes

We also provide

  • Bilingual youth services and parent support
  • Safe outdoor and indoor areas at our confidential shelter, the Safe
    House, where children can relax and just be kids
