The Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness (Abuse Hurts) exists to significantly reduce the incidence and impact of abuse through education and public awareness. Abuse Hurts operates solely on private donations with no sustaining funds from any government body. Through community and corporate partnerships, we also strive to provide accessible support, healing and empowerment for all Canadians touched by the trauma of abuse.
About CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ABUSE AWARENESS
The Canadian Centre for Abuse Awareness (Abuse Hurts) was established in 1993 to assist Canadians affected by the life-long trauma of abuse-and to educate the public about the detrimental role abuse plays in our society.
A national registered charity, Abuse Hurts is powered by a committed group of staff and volunteers driven to combat abuse through our series of programs and resources, special events, sponsored activities and public awareness campaigns.
