Forbes House program supports our mission to minimize re-victimization by providing a caring, supportive environment throughout the client’s stay at Forbes House – free of all judgment and stigma that is often unfairly attached to victims and survivors of domestic violence. Our program focuses on every aspect of the client’s needs, such as providing counseling services to adults and children, safety educational requirements, obtaining suitable housing to accommodate clients and their children, and helping clients with job applications, resumes, and continuing education goals. We help clients focus on setting achievable goals that they can feel good about, which gives them a sense of power and control over their lives, which may be misplaced in a an abusive environment.
