We are pleased to announce that the 2024 Edition of The Refrigerator Door is now ready and available!

The Refrigerator Door was originally created and published by Nova Vita with the aim of providing a practical handbook for individuals experiencing violence and abuse in their relationships. Since 2009, this community resource tool has been revised and maintained by the BRAVE Committee (Brant’s Response Against Violence Everywhere) with funding from both the City of Brantford and the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

The Refrigerator Door represents the collaborative efforts of several different social service organizations in Brantford, Brant County, and Six Nations of the Grand River. As members of the BRAVE Committee, these agencies are dedicated to coordinating the community’s response to gendered violence, domestic violence, and sexual violence.

An online version of this handbook is available at brant-brave.org or novavita.org. Copies may be downloaded, printed and circulated free of charge. If you would like a physical copy of The Refrigerator Door, please contact brave@novavita.org.
