Welfare and Self-Reliance Resources:
Sexual Abuse Resources: Family Services offers counseling for a variety of challenges, including healing from the impact of sexual abuse. According to demand, Family Services offices offer a “Healing from Sexual Abuse” group for adults which connects gospel and therapeutic principles. When a Relief Society president learns of a sister who may benefit from counseling or from participation in a support group to help the sister heal from the effects of sexual abuse, the Relief Society president may recommend to her bishop that the sister receive these services through Family Services. More information about Healing from Sexual Abuse groups and their availability can be learned by contacting your local Family Services office (please note that groups are not yet available in all areas). There is also information online on abuse in the Life Help section on the Church website/Gospel Library app.
Self-reliance Resources: Many Church members could benefit from improving their self-reliance. Self-reliance groups are small, action-oriented councils. During each group meeting, participants spend time reviewing doctrinal principles of self-reliance. They also learn practical skills such as managing personal finances, finding a better job, increasing education, building emotional resilience, or starting and growing a small business. They meet together to help build the skills and faith of each participant. For more information visit https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/self-reliance. Local welfare and self-reliance managers can advise stake or district leaders on offering self-reliance groups in their units.
