We are thrilled to announce that starting August 1st we will be directing our donations to the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre.
The ORCC provides a magnitude of services including a 24/7 crisis line, group or individual counseling, public education, advocacy and accompaniment.
Their services focus on - supporting survivors, raising awareness, empowering community, pressing for changes in our systems, and more.
We have chosen the ORCC because of a wonderful nomination email that we received from a women who has used the ORCC services.We are grateful to learn more about incredible organizations impacting the lives of women.
"They are honestly so deserving and work incredibly hard to provide survivors with a multitude of services at no cost. I was able to receive a year of counselling, as well as access to group therapy and endless resources. They’ve worked incredibly hard to make the space as accessible and welcoming as possible, providing everything from snacks to journals to hygiene and contraception. These women work on a volunteer basis and really put their hearts and souls into every aspect of their jobs." - Anonymous Nominator

We are honoured to be supporting the work of the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre over the next few months!
