Lotus is a program that explores creative expressions like painting, music and more to build self-esteem, healthy relationships and resiliency. Lotus is designed for girls and young women who have experienced trauma such as physical/sexual abuse, harassment, dating violence or who have been impacted by domestic violence.

The Lotus program offers individual and/or group experiences designed to minimize the negative impact of abuse on participants’ bodies, minds and futures. The goal of this group is to guide clients to gain insight to their thoughts, feelings and behaviors while building resiliency, self-esteem, coping skills and healthy relationships.
