Support for Women in Peterborough

We provide support, information and resources to women who have experienced violence or abuse.

Person counselling and young woman

We’re here to listen, to help a woman see her own strength and to provide resources that will help her find safer ways of moving forward in her life.

Our Free Confidential Services Include:

  • support by phone or in person with flexible meeting arrangements
  • safety planning to help keep women and their children safe
  • Family Court Support (includes a wide range of supports for women who are about to start or are in the process of Family Court, including: assistance with applying for Legal Aid, help finding a lawyer, support with completing documents including affidavits, accompaniment to court and more)
  • accompaniment to appointments
  • emergency transportation to safety
  • information about healthy relationships
  • information about housing and income supports
  • referrals to education and employment supports

Our programs rely on donor funding for their operation. As government and other agency funding is decreasing, the demand for our services is increasing. To find out more about how you can help bridge this gap and change the lives of countless women and children in our communities, please contact us.
