VWTH Launches Campaign to Help Kids

Victoria Women’s Transition House is excited to launch our very special campaign with a goal of raising $5,000 to produce an educational DVD for our Children Who Witness Abuse Program.

The DVD will  demonstrate some of the typical behaviours of children who have experienced the trauma of witnessing abuse and educate parents and other adults about how they can support kids to overcome trauma and grow up to be part of healthy and loving relationship.

“DVD’s have worked well in teaching new healthy options to prevent and recover from relationship abuse,” notes Program Director Parm Kroad.  “We are excited about the potential of this educational tool to help children who have witnessed abuse to access the support they need to recover from trauma, and build healthier relationships as they grow.”

“We believe this DVD will help us to break the cycle of abuse for these children. Boys who witness abuse have a 10x greater chance of  repeating abuse as an adult. Together we can improve the odds for kids!”

Many thanks for your support!
