About SURVIVOR'S HOPE CRISIS CENTRE INC.
SURVIVOR'S HOPE PROGRAMS:
SARAH provides trained support workers (24/7) who offer crisis intervention support to survivors and secondary victims of sexual assault. Our workers provide emotional support, information sharing, referrals, and follow-up contacts. Emergency contact with SARAH is usually made through the RCMP or the Emergency department at our local hospitals. SARAH workers assist victims to understand their options as they negotiate the legal and health systems after disclosing.
SADI helps youth develop healthy relationships, avoid potential violence, and understand the factors that contribute to abuse. Our school-age (Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12) workshops address the issues of sexual violence and relationship abuse, as well as topics which cover the aspects of a healthy self image and healthy relationships. The ultimate goal of the SADI program is to help students acquire the skills and knowledge to increase their safety.
REACHING OUT builds on the SADI and SARAH programs. We are reaching out to women to improve access to resources that will help them identify abuse, seek support and break the sense of isolation rural women often experience. Reaching Out also delivers information to service providers, service clubs, businesses, sports clubs and groups interested in tackling the issues of sexual violence, relationship abuse and sexual exploitation.
What People Are Saying
"It is time to raise awareness of sexual violence and relationship abuse that occurs in our families and communities. We need to support those who have survived violence, extend a hand to those still struggling and be there for survivors regardless of where they are on their healing journey. "
