Trauma Intervention Services


Support to Survivors of Violence

Wayside Trauma Intervention Services in Milford supports and strengthens those who have faced some of life’s greatest challenges. Our experienced counselors and staff assist survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and those impacted by homicide, along with their families, through the process of healing. We strive to offer hope and empower survivors to lead full and successful lives.

We also work to prevent domestic and sexual violence through community outreach and education to schools, law enforcement, human service and mental health professionals, faith communities and other agencies. All services are confidential, free of charge and multi-lingual when available.
