Ending family violence and abuse is a community issue and all of us play a role in the solution.

Take A Stand and Against Family Violence and Abuse – Ways to help end abuse in our community:

Seek Help, Hope and Safety

Are you living with family violence and abuse?

Call The Denise House’s Emergency Shelter’s 24-Hour Crisis Helpline at 1.800.263-3725. Services are free of charge and trained counsellors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to help answer your questions. Click here for information on our Services and Programs.

Learn More About Family Violence

There are a lot of myths and stereotypes that exist around family violence. The more you learn about it, the better able you are to understand the complexity and need for change. Family violence is not OK, no-one ever “asks” to be abused and it affects everyone. Click here to learn about what abuse is.

Help Someone You Know or Think is Being Abused

If you have witnessed abuse or suspect that someone you know is being abused, help out by supporting them – let them know you are there for them.

Take a Stand Against Family Violence

Taking a Stand means standing up and stating that family violence and abuse is never acceptable. You can help increase public awareness by sharing information about abuse with others. Participate in events and/or create your own events to raise funds and awareness, especially in November as it is Woman Abuse Prevention Month in Ontario.

Give a Gift of Support

The Denise House relies on individual, corporate and community support to keep our community based prevention, counselling and education programs operational. Together we can create a world free of violence and abuse. Go to our Support Us section of our website for the different ways you can contribute.
