North York Women’s Shelter actively supports women and children to build lives free from violence by providing non-judgmental safe shelter, advocacy, and a range of initiatives and services, including 24-hour crisis support and wrap-around services. They want to deepen the impact of their legal program by formalizing their approach of providing comprehensive legal support to women in high risk situations, by pulling together a permanent working group of highly experienced and established legal experts. The objective is to address unmet legal needs with an innovative, specialized response that goes beyond the limited capacity of frontline Violence Against Women shelters.
This is an outstanding city.
