Neighborhood Place of Puna is hosting a “Women’s Group Facilitator” workshop on March 14-15, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the conference rooms on the ground floor of the Hawaii state building in Hilo.

Through exercises and dialogue, workshop participants will explore what they can do to bring women together, end horizontal hostility, and create true social change.

The workshop will be facilitated by Jill Abernathy who has worked for 26 years with the Duluth Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs as a women’s advocate, women’s group facilitator, and mentor.

Abernathy is an international trainer, having trained professionals in the battered women’s movement using Duluth Model curricula.

The workshop is open to women who are interested in forming and facilitating women’s support groups in their community.


Workshop fee is $25, which helps Neighborhood Place of Puna defray the cost of hosting the workshop.


Neighborhood Place of Puna is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to help families raise healthy safe keiki by providing families with the tools and supports they need to be successful.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited.
