Help Break the Cycle of Gender-Based Violence This Holiday Season
The risk of gender-based violence is on the rise.
The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have left more women, girls and gender-diverse people at risk of experiencing violence. Calls for police services related to domestic disturbances increased. Shelters and transition houses experienced an increase in crisis calls and demand for services. Tragically, more women and girls were killed by violence in 2020 than in 2019.
You can help make a difference.
By making a gift today, you will enable community services across the country to do their life-saving work. Our Out of Violence program provides grants to community organizations in every region of Canada that prevent and intervene in situations of gender-based violence. They do the complex work necessary to break the cycle of violence in families and communities, by providing services such as:
- Emergency shelter
- Housing support
- Help to rebuild life after abuse
- Sexual Assault and Exploitation Crisis Support
- Child Witness to Violence Programs
- Healthy Relationship Education for Teens
Every dollar counts.
It’s time to act now.
Thank you for your generosity during this critical time.
