Service for Children Exposed to Violence
This early intervention service is for children aged 0 to 18 who have been exposed to any form of violence (in the family, at school, in war, etc.). This includes an assessment of the child’s needs as well as individual and group support for both mother and child. Therapy takes place through interactive play, wellness and craft activities.
For group activities, snacks, meals, bus tickets and workshops are available.
Support for Survivors of Sexual Assault
If you have experienced sexual assault, know that you are not alone.
In fact, statistics show that one in three women and one in six men experience some form of sexual assault in their lifetime. Most people who experience sexual assault have difficulty talking about what they have gone through; it is a crime that is shielded, in part, by a code of silence.
It is important to remember that sexual assault is a criminal act that violates a person’s physical and psychological integrity and can have multiple consequences. Whether you are a woman or a man, you can ask for help.
