As professional counsellors, educators, health practitioners and activists, we are committed to providing a leadership role in the community, raising awareness and supporting those who have experienced sexualized violence.
We offer a continnuum of free, trauma-informed and trauma-specific services to sexual assault/abuse survivors and the broader community. These programs serve as models for other sexual assault services in Nova Scotia.
Avalon's work extends beyond individual issues within the Halifax Regional Municipality to address systemic issues at local, provincial, regional and national levels. We champion policy development, legislative reform, and social justice initiatives through collaboration with government, partners, and communities.
