SAFSS Services

Supportive Counselling for Victims of Domestic Violence

Starting in 1989, SAFSS was founded to address the epidemic of violence against women. Today, it continues to provide supportive counselling for victims of domestic and other types of violence on a confidential one-on-one basis and holding group sessions in a linguistically and culturally appropriate manner.

The support group for domestic violence model is based on sharing information about basic resources in the community and how to access them. The program teaches coping and survival skills in a culturally sensitive manner to help victims relate to each other and practice skills imparted during one-on-one counseling sessions. As of July 2017 we also conduct classes for men who have been referred to us or who wish to learn about domestic violence issues.
