Helping Children Exposed to Batterers

Join us in our free 10 week class designed to help parents and caregivers understand the impact of violence on their children and themselves. It teaches parents to talk and listen to their children about their experiences of violence, encourage children’s resiliency and support parents in strengthening their relationships with their children.

Please call our office at (541)592-2515 to get signed up! It begins October 11th! We provide childcare, lunch and includes weekly gifts, with gas cards if needed.

Fun at the Kids Fair Pet Parade

The Alliance advocates, Pamela and Ashley were on hand to greet children and help them “fill their buckets” with good things. It was windy, and crowds were small, but everyone had a great time!

How do we help our children heal?

Neurobiology reports that children’s brain development is impacted by exposure to violence in their homes.  And, the younger the child is, the more serious the damage is.  The way we heal our children is to expose them to healthy adult relationships–friends, family, parents and teachers that model self-regulation without the use of anger or intimidation.  We need to help them know what normal is.  The good news is that our brains are capable of healing throughout our entire life.  If you want to talk to an advocate about how you can help your child or any child, call 541.592.2515.  This is an excellent 14-minute video to start you off.
