November is Domestic Violence Prevention Month

Domestic Violence is a very real occurrence, in Winnipeg this year there have been a number of women murdered by their partners due to Domestic Violence.  Last year in Manitoba, 2594* women, men and children accessed help from Emergency Shelters and 7190* calls were made to the provincial crisis line. November is a month of remembrance and it’s important that we don’t let victims suffer in silence.  Join us in breaking the silence! (* Osborn House – Winnipeg, numbers are unavailable.)
