Our organization has the best support systems

Our Foundation was made to prevent Domestic violence from happening to women across Canada. We provide a place to live a little financial support, but enough to get you on your way. We believe everyone deserves a fresh start. Woman abuse is the international and systematic use of tastic to establish and maintain control and power in a relationship such as; Physical/ sexual assault, Emotional/Psychological abuse, verbal abuse, Financial abuse, environmental and social abuse, Religious / spiritual abuse, stalking/ Criminal harassment. Also 1 in 4 canadians woman have experienced violence in an intimate relationship. We create a safe environment for disclosure. Facilitating disclosure of abuse is partly dependant on offering a safe and secure environment for women to talk about the abuse and move on. As well 80 -90% of children in such homes are aware of and affected by the abuse , "weather it is seen , heard or otherwise sensed." We seek first to understand as well we give you the the things you need to get back on your feet. That come to JDV for a fresh start.
