Introducing Outreach Services – assistance that can come to you and that is tailored to your needs.
The Outreach Team offers services to women over the age of sixteen who have experienced abuse by a family member or an intimate partner and are either transitioning out of that relationship or have already left the relationship.
Currently there are six full time workers: four of which serve the cities of Kitchener Waterloo and two who service the Cambridge area. Women can receive assistance with legal options and referrals, help with housing, advocacy, education, safety planning, individual and group support. Interrupter service is arranged for those requiring it. Women can utilize this service for assistance getting into shelter, developing an alternative to shelter plan or for help transitioning out of shelter.
One thing that sets this service apart from other services is that there is no wait list and women are assigned a worker often within twenty-four hours. Women can also self-refer. For more information please contact the Outreach Manager at 519-653-2289 extension 2140.
Working with outreach…”it has renewed my faith in our system, and our helping profession”
“Non-judgemental support, good information, helpful and knowledgeable. Felt there was more to me than being a victim of domestic violence”
