For over 30 years, the Assaulted Women’s Helpline has served as a 24-hour telephone and TTY crisis line to all women in the province of Ontario who have experienced any form of abuse. The Helpline receives 50,000 calls a year. We provide crisis counselling, safety planning, emotional support, with information and referrals accessible 7 days a week in over 200 languages, 365 days a year.
The Assaulted Women’s Helpline is an essential first point of contact for women especially:
- In communities without women’s shelters or other services
- For women who would not traditionally access shelters- For non-English language speaking callers (average 10,000 per year)
- For TTY caller, for the deaf and hard of hearing (average 5,000 per year)
The Helpline Gala is an evening dedicated to fundraising, recognizing our important supporters and continuing to raise awareness for violence against women, in Ontario and beyond.
