Victims and Survivors of Crime Week

 

November 22–28 is national Victims and Survivors of Crime Week.

This year, VWTH has launched a community awareness campaign project called “Celebrating Courage, Renewing Commitment—Domestic Violence & Abuse Awareness.” The project aims to raise community awareness of the supports and services available to support victims and survivors of intimate partner violence and abuse—women, older women and children who witness abuse.

Our six awareness articles explore topics on violence and abuse, emergency shelter, counselling and resource supports as well as inspirational stories and quotes by courageous survivors. Click on the icons below to read the articles.
