Maumee Court Men's Domestic Violence Group
The Maumee Court began holding domestic violence men's groups at the Municipal Building starting in 1998. Since the program's inception, approximately 856 men have participated in the group. The program is 20 weeks in length, and is facilitated by Ed Vollmar, LPCC. It is held at the courthouse/municipal building, and the group is offered at three different times on Wednesday:
10:30 a.m. to noon 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 6:00 p.m. 7:30 p.m.
Some times are more popular than others, and there is a waiting list of approximately two weeks. People are encouraged to sign up as soon as they know as to which session they can commit. Participants are allowed three excused absences over the 20 weeks period, but participants must be excused by the group facilitator, and if you miss more than three, you will be required to start the group again and also pay again.
The cost for the 20 week program is $80.00 for Maumee Court participants and $300.00 for all other court participants. Payments for the program can be made at the Maumee Court Criminal/Traffic Clerk's Office between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Clerk's Office will accept payments in the form of cash, money order, Visa, and MasterCard. If paying by certified bank check or personal check, checks must be made payable to Maumee Municipal Court. Payments can be made weekly over the course of the group, however, no one will be considered finished until the program cost is paid in-full.
There are two ways to register for the Men's Domestic Violence Group. The first way is to come to our office in person during business hours. One can then complete the paperwork, be assigned to the group time requested, and given a start date. The process will take about ten minutes. Secondly, one can download the registration form and bring it in in person or complete it and return it to us by email, fax, or mail.
IF YOU DO NOT COME TO OUR OFFICE AND REGISTER IN PERSON, please make sure you provide us with a working phone number and indicate what time/group you wish to attend. Once we receive your registration form, we will contact you within one business day to confirm your registration, group time, and starting date. The court that is referring you will also be notified of your registration at this time. In addition to filling out and sending us registration information, you will need to download, printout, and complete the Social History Form at the bottom of this page. The completed Social History Form is to be brought with you to your first group session and given to the counselor.
