COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

Reach! – Empowering Underserved Survivors of Sexual Violence

Sexual Assault Support Centre Ottawa, Ottawa

Reach! seeks to expand SASC’s services and support network to two groups of survivors that have identified as particularly underserved: differently-abled women, and mothers whose children have witnessed or experienced sexual violence. The three interrelated activities of the project are: a facilitated 15-week peer support group tailored to differently-abled survivors of sexual violence; a facilitated 15-week peer support group tailored to mothers of survivors or witnesses to sexual violence; and the roll out of a Text Support line to enable women who are unable to access the 24-hour phone line, including women who have hearing or speech difficulties or feel uncomfortable using the phone, to also have 24-hour crisis support.

Grant amount: $16,880
