No Judgement,
Just Support

We provide free, confidential, and non-judgmental 24 hour support to all survivors of violence including female-identified, male-identified, and members of the transgender community.  We advocate against violence in the community at large and promote prevention through community education.

In-person counselling is available at our Oakville Location.  We understand that women experience oppression in varying configurations and intensity depending on their individual backgrounds and this may have an additional impact on those already facing sexual abuse. Our counsellors work from an anti-racist and anti-oppressive viewpoint to provide assessments that are non-directive and non-judgemental.
