Avalon Sexual Assault Centre
This is our local centre. They have been incredibly supportive of us and our family. Find yours and give.
The Avalon Sexual Assault Centre is a non-profit organization that provides services for those affected by sexualized violence, with primary emphasis on support, education, counselling, and leadership/advocacy. We hope you’ll choose to support the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre and here’s why:
- Nova Scotia has one of the highest rates of sexual assault per capita in Canada.
- Avalon is the only sexual assault centre in HRM.
- Women and trans* individuals are waiting up to 5 months for therapeutic counselling.
- There is a need to expand the time frame for response and services provided by the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program after immediate sexual assault/abuse.
- Avalon Centre is unable to meet the growing demand for public education/professional training that many workplaces, communities, and schools are requiring.
