November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month

For 30 years, Family Transition Place has embraced more than 20,000 families, helping them deal with abuse and violence. This November, in support of Woman Abuse Prevention Month, please help us make new beginnings possible. Show your support for ending Woman abuse by purchasing, wearing, and telling others about your “Wrapped in Courage” purple scarf—available for purchase for $15 at Scotiabank Orangeville & Bolton and various other locations throughout Dufferin & Caledon. Purple is a symbol of courage, survival and honour, and has come to symbolize the fight to end woman abuse. You can also pledge $25 and support our “Help End Woman Abuse Campaign”. Your name will be added to the circle of HOPE supporters published in December’s snapd Dufferin and on our website. All proceeds will support FTP initiatives to help break the cycle of violence. Visit familytransitionplace.ca or call 519-942-4122 for more details.

Safety. Support. Hope. Building healthier communities – one relationship at a time.
