Community Support & Outreach

The Community Support and Outreach Program provides confidential and non-judgmental supports to survivors of violence and abuse living in the community. As a client-centred program, clients define and identify their needs and what types of services they want to access. Support can take many forms, including safety planning, emotional support, referrals to other services, information-sharing and problem-solving. Support can also take the form of addressing issues or challenges they may be experiencing, such as housing support, legal support, immigration support, shelter support and more. Support can be provided in-person or remotely, such as by telephone, email, video or other platforms.

The following persons are eligible to receive supports through the Community Support and Outreach Program:

  • All women and two-spirit, genderqueer, trans and non-binary people who are 16 years of age and older, with or without dependents, and who are currently experiencing, have experienced or are at risk of experiencing any form violence;
  • Services can be provided to people regardless of their geographical location.
