VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN SERVICE (“VAW”)
We are here to help and provide comfort on a confidential basis to women experiencing physical and emotional abuse. Information and ongoing support is available on-site.
Every Tuesday morning, a transitional support worker from Interval House is available at Neighbour to Neighbour Centre for one-on-one counselling.
Cyndy, the worker from Interval House was really knowledgeable and helped me and my kids understand that we deserved to be treated well. I had no idea of where to turn, and she really helped me navigate the system and get the help I needed.

NEW MOM’S STARTER KIT
The Starter Kit is available to new or expecting moms and includes:
- Gift bag of clothing, blankets and toiletry products that are suitable for bringing a newborn home from the hospital
- Diapers, baby wipes, receiving blanket, sleeper, baby toy, toiletries (powder, lotion, oil, nursing pads, soap)
- Knitted items such as a sweaters set and a hand quilt blanket (hand knit by our volunteers)
It seems like a small thing, but getting the bag of baby things with that sweet knitted blanket… really gives me a feeling that people care
