Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women – Reduse Abuse

Group Name: Elspeth Heyworth Centre for Women – Reduse Abuse

Description: We seek to empower women, seniors and newcomers to achieve their full potential. We provide services focused on promoting healthy families, community relationships and economic self-sufficiency. We believe this work helps empower immigrant and newcomer women, seniors, and families to enjoy all rights and benefits of living in Canada.

The Reduce Abuse program supports women from all walks of life, but notably those of South Asian and Caribbean descent who have recently immigrated to Canada and reside in the Greater Toronto Area. The program is delivered in partnership with Toronto Police Division 31. We work to create a broader awareness of women’s rights in Canada within immigrant communities. This furthers our mission to reduce abuse among newcomers. Women who participate in the program experience a sense of self-realization. They often continue their association with the Centre as volunteers and mentors in their own capacity.
