Nobody can share your story better than you can.

Over 1 in 3 women experience some form of domestic abuse in Canada in their lifetime.

– If you haven’t experienced it yourself, chances are that you know someone who has. Despite these staggering statistics, these stories are often not shared publicly due to the stigmas and biases that surround this issue. We want to break that stigma.
– There isn't anyone who can share your story better than you can. If you have been impacted by domestic abuse in some way, as someone who has experienced it themselves, as a child of someone who has, or even as a donor or community member, this is your call to action. Help us shine a light on the issue and take it out of the darkness.
