CMSAC provides both open and closed support groups designed for persons who have experienced sexual assault and sexual abuse and for others who are concerned about them. It is our intent that participants will find hope in their own personal healing journey. Groups convene when there are enough participants to begin meeting as a group. Please note that intakes are required for “closed” groups and that walk-in’s are welcome at all “open” groups.
All groups will be held at the Central MN Sexual Assault Center; located at 15 Riverside Drive NE – Saint Cloud, MN 56304
