Stopping the Violence Counselling

Stopping the Violence Counselling and Multicultural Outreach Program

DIVERSEcity’s Stopping the Violence Counselling services provides counselling, support, outreach and advocacy to immigrant and refugee women who have experienced family violence, sexual assault or historical abuse, or are at risk of abuse. We use trauma-informed therapeutic approaches to support our clients. Culturally appropriate services are available in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Mandarin, Punjabi, Spanish, Farsi and English. This program is for women 19 years of age or older, or women under 19 who are living an adult life.

Our Stopping the Violence Multicultural Outreach Program provides safe and protective support for women who have experienced intimate partner violence, particularly those who require multicultural services, through practical assistance and supports, including accompaniments. The program is designed to support women’s abilities to identify their goals and to connect them to other community resources.
