Supporting Kids Affected by Domestic Abuse
Children are often the silent victims of domestic violence and the effects of abuse can significantly impact their future physical and emotional wellbeing. SafeHouse of Seminole offers a number of support programs for children that help develop healthy, positive relationships and overcome the negative effects of violence in the home. SafeHouse Outreach Center offers a variety of youth workshops for children who have witnessed domestic violence. To learn more, contact our advocates at 407-302-1010.
Empowering Children through the Power of Play
At our campus housing for children and women, we encourage kids to explore free, unstructured playtime that is critical to healthy development. Many children experience anger, fear, low self-esteem and more. Our Power of Play program helps youth deal with these emotions and stimulates creativity, allowing them to be in control of their environment while feeling safe and secure. Our specially trained staff and dedicated volunteers work with children each day after school, incorporating lessons on conflict resolution, bullying and much more in a caring and supervised space.
Youth and Teen Programs for Relationship Abuse
SafeHouse’s Bystanders Rising Above Violence Everywhere (B.R.A.V.E.) program helps teenagers and young adults recognize the signs of abuse in relationships and what a healthy relationship looks like. Through the B.R.A.V.E. program, we teach teens how to recognize abusive behavior, and how they can prevent violence in their own community.
