DOMESTIC AND FAMILY VIOLENCE
Being confined at home is a factor that increases the risk of domestic and family violence and limits the ability of potential victims to reach out for help.
The Alliance des maisons d'hébergement de 2e étape pour femmes et enfants victimes de violence conjugale recently launched a campaign to help victims of domestic and family violence. Click here to learn more.
If you witness a case of violence against women and/or children, call 911.
