We are advocates.
The Avalon Sexual Assault Centre is a feminist organization working to eliminate sexual assault/abuse, and to change the current socio-political culture that fosters sexism, social injustice and other forms of oppression.
We are educators.
Avalon Sexual Assault Centre is committed to working with our colleagues, clients, and community using a feminist approach to invoke change and healing at both personal and societal levels.
We support empowerment.
Avalon Sexual Assault Centre uses a flexible, client-centered approach that supports self-determination. We support clients by being non-judgemental, providing information about their options, and affirming their decisions.
You are not alone.
Sexual violence profoundly affects individuals, families and our community. Avalon Sexual Assault Centre is committed to a practice approach that promotes victim empowerment and acknowledges that the person who commits the violence is responsible for their behaviour.
We are here to help.
Avalon Sexual Assault Centre provides services for those affected by sexualized violence, with primary emphasis on support, education, counselling and leadership/advocacy services for women and trans* people.
