Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Support Group
The Bering Sea Women's Group’s mission is to provide a safe haven for women, children, and men who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or other violent crimes while promoting a safe, healthy, and violence-free community. Our services are trauma-informed, and we are guided by our core values of Hope, Respect, and Dignity.
BSWG provides immediate response to domestic violence and sexual assault by providing a safe shelter and meals, safety planning, referrals, legal advocacy, personal advocacy, travel support, and medical advocacy. Crisis intervention is also provided through the operation of a toll-free, 24-hour crisis line at the BSWG four-bedroom group living home. BSWG sponsors Safe Homes in five Bering Strait villages and communities, and a Safe Home for Men in Nome.
BSWG collaborates and coordinates with many local entities to meet the needs of the victims of domestic violence and to provide prevention education.
