Did you know that approximately 80% of sexual assaults against women are committed by people known to the women - dates, boyfriends, marital partners, friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers. (Statistics Canada, 2003)
Daphne’s Drop-in helps women to know that they are not alone and that there are others who face the same challenges. It is an empowering project that brings women together in a mutually-supportive environment through life skills, education, workshops, speakers, videos, and discussions.
The Program Goals are:
to offer a safe place for women to meet,
a support group for all women,
and to build self-esteem.
It's Fun! It's Educational! It's Free!
Daphne’s Drop-in is available to all women and occurs on a weekly basis during the school year. As funds permit, child care may be provided, and transportation may be arranged upon request.
