The Need Explained

More than 50% of Canadian women over the age of 16 have been victims of physical or sexual violence- at any stage in their lives*. Violence against women affects all cultures, ages, religions, sexual orientations, psychological, physical, sexual, financial and neglect.

The demand for our crisis line continues to grow year after year and due to lack of funding, as many as 50% of all the women that call the line during peak periods cannot get through to speak to a counsellor. This means thousands of women hear a busy signal when they need to hear the voice of one of the crisis line counsellors.
