Support

Living with abuse can lead to severe trauma.

With assistance from CHANA’s trauma-informed counselors, victims start to heal and rebuild their lives. All services are confidential and free.

Supportive Counseling: CHANA offers compassionate, confidential supportive counseling to anyone affected by abuse, empowering individuals to move toward safety.

Support Groups: CHANA’s support groups provide a safe, confidential place for survivors and those who care about them to connect with others, to heal and to take steps toward a brighter future. A variety of groups are offered in northwest Baltimore.

Support Includes

  • Safety planning
  • Emotional support
  • Education about the dynamics of abuse
  • Guidance about legal options
  • Connection to community resources

“After years of abuse, I wanted to feel safe. I wanted to become independent from my abuser. I wanted to be honest and say what really happened to me. Unless you’ve been abused, you can’t understand the feelings of shame, fear and loneliness. When I met other women and heard about their situations, I realized I wasn’t alone and I became stronger over time.”
