Services provided by VOICe are both supportive and educative in nature. They are available on an individual basis (either through our hotline or in person) and in group settings. The goal of all counseling services offered by VOICe is to empower survivors toward the recognition of their own abilities, return a sense of control over their lives and reaffirm their personal dignity.
In person, individual counseling most often occurs at one of the agency’s offices but can be arranged at any location that is mutually agreeable to both the survivor and the agency. Care has been taken to establish in-office counseling areas that assure accessibility, confidentiality and safety.
VOICe facilitates support groups for survivors in Butler, Cranberry and in shelter. We provide open and closed groups facilitated by agency staff and co-facilitated by staff and/or volunteers. Survivors may enter and exit open groups based on their individual needs.
All of the counseling services described are fluid in nature. Although some survivors choose to utilize only one (1) aspect (hotline, in-person or group), many more choose to use these services in conjunction with one another.
