FOCUS Support Group for Women in Abusive Relationships

Domestic violence takes many shapes and forms: physical, emotional, verbal (and many more). For those caught in such a relationship, they may find themselves feeling alone and misunderstood. Do not try to walk this path alone!

FOCUS Ministries aims to:

  • Help women see how valuable they are to God
  • Help them establish healthy boundaries in relationships
  • Assure them they are not alone
  • Point them to Jesus as the stability and focal point of their lives
Elmwood Park Community Church sponsors a FOCUS support group for women struggling in toxic relationships.

  • When: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month in the evening.
  • Where: Email or call (708) 299-7573 to find out the exact location and time.
  • What to expect: Encouragement, support, sharing, topical discussions, fellowship, devotions, and prayer.
