Older women (50+ years) face many of the same problems as younger women when they leave abusive relationships. But many of them face much more complex challenges. The abuse may be from an adult child or a partner with serious health problems. The woman herself may have health issues or have little or no money when she leaves. And, in most cases, she has many years of love and hard work invested in the relationship. Whatever the case, we help her sort out the many problems she has – whether she chooses to live on her own or with her abuser. We help with all of these areas as well as providing a quiet environment so she can make life changing decisions.
Similar to women’s outreach with services that are attuned to the needs of mature women and include: individual counseling; safety planning, accompaniment, community information and referrals.
