Stopping the Violence Counseling
The Women’s Resource Centre has 'Stopping the Violence' Counselors. This is a provincial program that provides counseling services to groups or individual women who have experienced sexual assault, violence/abuse, or historical abuse.
Drop-in Support Service
The QWRC offers support services to all women who wish to access it. There is always someone here to talk to women who want to share their ups and downs and the coffee/tea is always on. We have comfortable and private surroundings for nursing mothers. We invite all women to come in and eat lunch, use the washroom or just come in for a break. This service is quite busy and on average we see 3-4 women in need of support dropping in daily.
Outreach Support Services
The QWRC provides counseling, advocacy, support, and transportation to clients who are the victims of abuse and/or assault. They also provide the community with information about resources in the community and facilitate peer support groups for women with a history of domestic abuse and violence.
