Making Positive Personal Change
Learning through shared experience
Research has shown that gathering with a group of peers who understand your challenges, can offer new perspectives, can support you during difficult times, and can be an extremely rewarding experience. Regularly talking and listening to others helps our group participants understand that they're not alone in what they're facing.
Provident provides outpatient group counseling for adults who have committed a domestic violence or sexual offense. These sessions are held at multiple locations within the St. Louis area and are scheduled at a variety of times to meet client needs.
Men Ending Domestic Violence
The message we send to each of our participants in the Men Ending Domestic Violence group is, "Your life doesn't have to stay this way." Provident's counselors work with you and your group to learn about how your thoughts and feelings led to abusive behaviors and techniques for changing your responses to gain a more positive outcome. We show you how to feel better, be better, and do better.
Provident offers 32 week programs for both men and women. Each session is 90 minutes and meets Department of Corrections standards in Missouri and Illinois.

Sexual Offender Treatment
Men join our Sexual Offender Treatment program because it's legally mandated as part of their rehabilitation. They stay with it because, week by week, they begin to see how they can move past a defining moment to lead a positive life. They see how they can be better for their experience and live a life with no more victims.
Provident's approach is focused on relapse intervention and customized planning. We offer care, support, and a judgement-free environment for 90 minutes each week. We work closely with probation and parole officers to make sure our clients are progressing and that there will be no more victims.
