- Postpartum Support Group
- Women’s Personal and Relational Skills Group


"One of our clients is an elderly old woman with severe mobility constraints and debilitating agoraphobia. Five months ago she began accessing the counselor hired through this program, first over telephone and then, as the client's well-being and comfort-level increased, over Zoom. As a result, earlier this month this client was able to leave her home and access a dentist for the first time in over 10 years for much needed work. Work with this client is not yet finished, but this instance highlights the impact this service has had on people who previously faced significant barriers to access." - CFEC Staff "They really made sure that all the medical professionals were really communicating with each other and nobody fell through the cracks… It wasn’t like the police had one part of the story, the hospital another. They really brought everyone together. Everybody was talking to one another." - CFEC Client
