Group Name: Arab Community Centre of Toronto – Domestic Abuse Education Project
Description: The Arab Community Centre of Toronto (ACCT) is a non for profit organization with charitable status, and is non-political and non-sectarian. The ACCT is proud to be a focal point for all Arab and non-Arab communities in which they can find an outlet for settlement and social services inquiries. We serve newcomers of all cultures, religions and ethnicities.
The Domestic Abuse Education project’s aim is to raise awareness regarding violence against women, elders and children and to educate clients about the effects of violence and inform them about better ways of dealing with conflict.
This past year, we noticed an increase of domestic violence cases. We had quite a few cases that were referred to us by the Police Victim Services, Social Services, LINC schools and probation Officers. Fortunate enough we were able to prevent a few cases from escalating, especially cases that were brought to our attention before being reported to the police. Counseling was a great help in many of these cases.
