Our Gender-Based Violence Prevention & Support Program has started. See the following Poster and Request Form.
"Safer + Stronger:
Challenging the Rising Risk of Gender-Based Violence in the COVID-19 Pandemic."
The purpose of this GBV21 Program is to help address the influx of increased gender-based violence and it's impact on women, girls and LGBTQ2+ in the Black, Immigrant, Racialized and Official Language Minority communities.
Funding for this Program is provided by Canadian Women's Foundation, through funds provided by the Department of Women and Gender Equality (WAGE).
Keeping New Immigrants Informed, Healthy, Safe and Fed.
Thanks to funding support from the Canadian Red Cross COVID-19 Emergency Community Support Fund, we have been able to deliver hundreds of free hot meals, dozens of free food hampers and dozens of free PPE kits to vulnerable new Canadians and immigrant families and individuals in our communities. We are doing culturally suitable virtual and social media awareness campaigns on COVID-19 safety, health and wellness. We are now offering counselling and mental health support through trained professionals for vulnerable new Canadians and immigrants experiencing increased anxiety, depression and mental issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
PROJECT ACTIVITIES: Provide free culturally suitable and confidential counselling and mental health support to vulnerable immigrants and new Canadians. Distribute free food hampers and/or meals and PPE. Host COVID-19 Safety, Health and Wellness Awareness Campaigns by Zoom, webinars and social media.
