Our Programs & Services
Women Helping Women
Catholic Family Services of Toronto has been provided with funding from Status of Women Canada to implement a three year project. The project will develop a pool of trained volunteers to act as mentors for women who are experiencing abuse. Women who have received help and are in a more stable stage of life can be powerful mentors. Much of this work with the women includes supporting them in their efforts to find appropriate community services and helping them reduce their own isolation.
The mentors, who have each made significant gains in their own unique healing journey, will also support the recruitment and training activities of the program. Volunteers will also engage in community outreach to further the awareness of woman abuse and the services available to keep women and their families safer.
