Who Can We Help?

 

Are you a woman:

Who is feeling frightened, isolated, trapped, depressed, confused, helpless?

Do you feel like you are constantly walking on eggshells?

Does your partner hit you or your children? Force you to have sex? Threaten you or prevent you from seeing family and friends? Destroy your property? Threaten to take your children or have you deported?

Are you a man:

Who often loses his temper and lashes out at his partner?

Does your family seem anxious and scared around you?

Do you feel confused, depressed, trapped, scared, or out of control?

Do you feel that you and your partner are becoming further apart?

LGBTQ Community:

Are you in a same sex relationship and find the above questions apply to your relationship with your partner?

Newcomers:

Are you new to Canada and having problems in your relationship? Do you need someone to talk to who can understand the difficulties you are having?

We provide services in all languages and to all cultures.

Domestic violence looks different in different families. Do you feel that in your family, both you and your partner are becoming abusive and aggressive towards each other? We can help you as well.
