On Sunday, June 9, 2019 join us to stand tall, together, against domestic violence?
Stand Tall! Nova Vita Domestic Violence Prevention Services is excited to announce our 9th annual Heels to Heal Walk in support of the over 1,000 individuals we serve every year. Join us on Sunday, June 9th, 2019 in Brantford’s Harmony Square, and stand tall in your red heels or your red shoes against domestic violence. This is our largest event of the year, both in raising awareness and in financial support.
Can YOU walk a “Canadian Mile” in these shoes? Keeping with the history of our walk, formerly Men In Heels, we have red high heels available in men’s sizes 8 to 16, for our participants to complete the wobbly 1 km walk through the heart of our downtown. Wear our shoes or bring your own, and join us as we all walk TOGETHER to raise essential funding for Nova Vita and help to send the message that domestic violence is never OK!
Domestic Violence is a serious epidemic in our community. Brantford is currently ranked 2nd in Ontario and 6th in all of Canada for police reported incidents of domestic violence. We at Nova Vita, see every day how exposure to domestic violence impacts individuals and families, and we work diligently to provide safe shelter, crisis support, individual and group counselling to everyone in our community.
Last year alone, we had:
4,560 calls to our 24 hours crisis and support line
272 women and children live at Nova Vita
293 women access our transitional support workers
222 women in the community receive individual counselling
27 children who were exposed to domestic violence receive counselling through our child-witness program and 15 children receive ongoing individual counselling
280 men who were abusive or at risk of being abusive received off-site individual and group interventions
