You can bring healing resources to your community by starting a Finding Hope Support Group. We have put together a list of things you need to do in order to start a group. Some things might take longer than others. Don’t get discouraged. The support, education, and healing you will find for yourself—and other survivors—is worth the effort.
We would also suggest the following:
- Determine in advance the way you will communicate with group members: We recommend creating a new email address that you only use for your support group or using a third-party app such as Band, Slack or a Facebook closed group.
- If you want to recruit publicly, you can use the community flyer to post information about your group.
- Don’t get discouraged. These support groups often start small and build over time.
