At Avalon, we believe survivors and encourage them to seek help.
Now, we need help.
Recently, demand for our services has increased. Since the Jian Ghomeshi verdict last month, Avalon has responded to a further increase in demand for services from the community. Other stories in the news, including the three-year anniversary of Rehtaeh Parsons’s death, have also caused people to request services. Our current funding does not allow us to meet this high demand.
Donations will directly help those in crisis and limit serious, long-term trauma effects for people who have been victimized.
We will always put the needs of survivors first. We will continue providing services to survivors based on their individual needs. This campaign will help us to better respond to people who may currently have limited access to support and services after sexual assault/abuse has occurred.
More and more community members are demonstrating that they believe in and stand up for survivors and the importance of sexual assault services. If you think sexual assault services need to be more available and accessible, please show your support by contributing to the crowdfunding campaign today!
