What we're about

Let's get together and support each other in our journey through and past abuse of any form. All survivors are welcome. We are a caring group who will listen to and affirm one another, providing vital peer support. You are invited to join us as we share our experiences of surviving and managing past and/or current abuse.

This participant list and all messages/discussions are private and secure. They are only accessible to the members of this group. We are open and inclusive to all survivors of any type of abuse or trauma. There are several ways to get involved and we look forward to meeting with you.

Our Coffee and Conversation meetup is an casual and open forum where you are welcome to chat about what is happening in your life, or just sit back and listen to what others are saying and possibly relate to something you hear. We meet at various comfy rooms at Taborspace in SE PDX. Once a month we meet in Room 04 with a play space for your children to attend with you (refer to comments on that week's Meetup for room specifics). We provide coffee, tea, snacks, and free Wi-Fi. Many members find strong relationships when they connect through our online community and by meeting with each other one-on-one.

SCARS Healing Garden meetups are a time to be active with our bodies and engage our minds in healthful and productive ways. The SCARS Community Healing Garden is located in the PCC Rock Creek Learning Garden where I teach beginner's gardening workshops on various Fridays throughout the year. Childcare is not available during the gardening classes.

Other Survivor-led meetings include DV Advocacy training, Speakers' Workshops, and Survivor Impact Panels. Check out the Meetup group calendar for more information!
