For women who have experienced sexual violence including sexual assault, workplace sexual harassment, domestic violence or child sexual abuse.

A life-makeover is an opportunity for participants to attend a self-care session to build self-esteem & change their lives to heal from sexual violence. We offer self-care + wellness, life skills development and support groups for our participants.

Our self-care sessions take place at community centres and wellness spaces. We aim to support 1,000 women in 2022 through our in person and online sessions.

This would not be possible without the help of our supporters, volunteers and community partners. Together we work to improve the lives of women effected by sexual violence.
