About Nova Vita

Since 1983, we’ve been here to offer help, hope and healing to abused women and their children.

Leaving an abusive situation is one of the toughest things any woman or child has to face. Nova Vita provides the emotional, practical and social support that families need to get their lives back on track – we offer free and confidential services including:

Programs that help children and youth rebuild their self-esteem, and break the cycle of violence through art and play therapy, counselling, and our Children who Witness Domestic Violence program.

Ongoing support to help women build confidence and self-reliance through transitional housing and support services and referrals to other community resources.

Assistance to women and children trapped in an abusive home through outreach visits and educational workshops at local schools, libraries, churches, and other community gathering places.

Counselling for individuals who are, or at risk of being, abusive towards their partners.

If you need help, or want to help others, please contact us. It’s the first step. And it can change your life forever.
