We know that talking about your life can be really hard, so we try to make counselling a safe experience for you. We offer a variety of counselling services to any woman who is seeking to address the emotional impacts of her abuse experiences. Our counselling services are free and are unlimited in duration. We support each woman in creating safety for herself and her children, whatever her circumstances may be. Counselling services are available at WRRC as well as various locations throughout Middlesex County.
In the Children’s Program we support the healing needs of families who have been impacted by women abuse and seek to enhance the parenting capacity of mothers and fathers. Through individual and group counselling for children and their mothers, we optimize on strengths to promote and increase a child’s ability to overcome their experience of abuse.
We provide women and their children with a safe and supportive place to stay. We help with safety planning, support and advocacy on a short term or longer term basis.
Our 24 hour crisis line is for immediate crisis, safety planning, ongoing support, and is the first contact for calls related to the Neighbours, Friends and Families Program.
Our Transition program supports women with legal, financial and housing resources and advocacy services. We provide opportunities for women and their children to remain connected and to develop natural supports through ongoing Group activities.
Transition program works with women who are planning for or who are in the middle of transition. A big part of transition is helping women navigate the system and we do this through legal, financial, and housing resources including advocacy.
We know that women going through transition do not have great natural supports so we help to building a support system to support their life as they change their story.
