The Assaulted Women's Helpline offers a toll-free and TTY (Teletypewriter) telephone crisis line helping women in the province of Ontario have experienced any form of abuse. Our critical service allows women to reach out for help free of charge in up to 200 languages, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are currently the only organization in Ontario to offer our level of service to women living with abuse.
Your support is critical in helping us achieve our mandate to provide crisis counselling & intervention, information and referrals, and safety planning to our callers each year - survivors of violence, their friends and families, health and legal professionals, community service providers and those calling on their behalf.
There are many barriers that women face preventing them from reaching out for help, or leaving an abusive relationship. Fear, shame, income, cultural or familial pressures, immigration status and countless other realities make it difficult or sometimes impossible for a woman to leave safely.
Please consider joining Team AWHL and help us raise awareness and the critical funds needed to help more women. For more information on the Mississauga Marathon, visit their website here.
