Like many, Avalon Sexual Assault Centre staff are taking winter holidays to relax and spend time with family and friends.

The office will close on Dec. 24 at 12 p.m. noon and will re-open on Jan. 2, 2013 at 8:30 a.m..

For anyone experiencing an immediate sexual assault, our Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners will be on-call during this time. Calls can be made to the 24-hour SANE response line at 902-425-0122.

Holidays can be difficult for some people who have experienced sexualized violence. For information and support during our closure, consider contacting other local resources.

Happy holidays to all our clients and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
