Patient and Family Services

Family Support Program

The Family Support Program provides direct service to abused women and children, including crisis counseling and advocacy and daily assessment. 

Social workers consult with MMC staff on cases of suspected or documented abuse and provide resource and referral information, along with safety planning, training and education. The program also offers a support group for survivors of domestic abuse.

The goal of the program is to screen all adult and adolescent females patients for abuse or violence in her life and to intervene on behalf of all identified victims/survivors of family violence, including children, adults and the elderly. 

The Family Support Program collaborates with community service providers to promote safety for victims and accountability for perpetrators.
