Children’s Program

For counseling for children living with abuse, call the Hope’s Door Hotline at 1-888-438-8700

Our trained counselors work with children to break the cycle of violence, to learn safety strategies, and to heal from the trauma of abuse. Our counselors empower children with tailored safety strategies, and in some cases, help them overcome and/or reverse delays in social, physical or cognitive skills resulting from the abuse. Role playing and other techniques guide us in encouraging children to express themselves in non-violent ways at home and in school. Our ultimate goal is to break the intergenerational cycle of abuse.

We use the following methodologies to achieve our goals:
• safety planning
• individual counseling
• support groups
• creative arts and play therapy
• parent support and empowerment
• recreational activities
• child development, and
• educational skills building
