This support group aims to empower women to make positive changes in their lives and that of their families. The majority of the participants have experienced abusive situations within their families, either presently or in the past. The support group is conducted in Spanish.


The Family Place began with a Domestic Violence Support Group in June 2009 with the help of Dr. Claudia Campos, a psychologist and educator in the Latino community who works at El Zol radio station. 

After over a decade, we offer the Circle of Latina Women Support Group (Círculo de Mujeres Latinas) to any participant looking for a wide range of experiences to enhance their lives.


On average, 202 Latina women participate yearly in the Spanish-language workshop offered by the Círculo de Mujeres Latinas. The workshop aims to increase their self-confidence and knowledge of legal and psychological resources, ultimately improving their lives.

Dr. Campos covers a wide array of topics like strengthening self-esteem, health, personal growth and self-realization, increasing emotional awareness, and learning about their rights to live a healthy life free of violence. 


Intending to educate on prevention and recovery from domestic violence and to explore different spheres of self-care and self-development, participants learn that they can change their lives to create a better future for themselves and their children. 

The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, between 10 a.m. and noon.
