Support Groups

You don't have to go through this alone.

Ongoing Middle Way House Support Groups

All services are free and confidential.

Middle Way House offers several support groups for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It is not necessary that an individual receive any other services from Middle Way House or reside in our emergency shelter or transitional housing programs to attend. An informational conversation is required prior to attending the first group. For more information or to request to join, call: 812-336-0846.

Adolescent & Teen Survivors of Sexual Violence Support Group

Middle Way House is collaborating with The Bloomington Center for Connection (BCC) on a new facilitated support group for youth who have experienced sexual violence of any kind. The BCC is currently conducting intakes for the bi-weekly, ongoing group. The group is a safe space, facilitated by BCC staff. Topics and focus areas are participant-led.

The group may require caregiver consent. An informational, in-person conversation is required before attending the first group. Interested teens can call or text "schedule SG" to reserve a time for the first intake interview: 812-360-2254 or add Center4Connect on SnapChat.
Queer Peer Advocacy (QPA)
Queer Peer Advocacy is a monthly support group and confidential space for people identifying along the spectrum of queerness to share experiences, strengthen bonds, and develop the skills needed to inspire one another and ignite action in the communities where we live. QPA is not specifically for survivors of domestic or sexual violence. Primary prevention tells us that strengthening LGBTQIA+ communities decreases domestic and sexual violence. Facilitators are MWH staff and community members who identify along the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. If you are interested in participating, contact our Prevention Program Coordinator, Lindsey Badger at
