The sexual abuse I experienced as a young child continued as a teenager, and by 15 I was being violently abused by my boyfriend. It’s taken me literally decades and the support of the Centre’s counsellors to understand healthy relationships and heal from my trauma. 


Engaging our Community

We can stop sexual violence from happening. Your gift to the Centre directly helps us provide education to young people at risk of sexual violence, as well as adults in our community and in workplaces throughout the four counties of Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, and Haliburton. Our region is just about the size of Prince Edward Island and that is why we need you to help us champion the message of addressing issues of gender inequality and sexual violence at home, in school, on the street, at work and in the media. Your donation also enables us to offer new and innovative workshops for survivors and their supporters through expressive arts, community-partnered and survivor-led events.

We welcome one time and monthly donations through Canada Helps, by phone or in person. Interested in seeing how a planned gift will enhance our capacity and leave a legacy for the Centre long-term, talk to us!

We are also available to receive donations through PayPal and Benevity.
