YOU ARE NOT ALONE

  • 1 in 4 women in Canada are assaulted by their intimate partner.
  • At least 1 woman is killed by her intimate partner every 4 days in Canada.
  • It is against the law for anyone to assault their intimate partner.
  • Women from all different economic, religious, educational and cultural back grounds are victims of abuse.
  • Alcohol does not cause abuse against women. It is a separate problem.
  • 80% of assaulted women reported being assaulted during a pregnancy.

ALL SERVICES ARE FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL.

The Transitional and Housing Support Program offers services to women and their children who have experienced abuse, to help them connect with community support and find and maintain safe housing. A Transitional Support Worker will:

  • Help with income supports.
  • Help with educational upgrading.
  • Help with employment supports.
  • Assist with building and extending women’s personal community of support.
