Who are we and what do we do

The Horizon Women’s Centre offers services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and to women in crisis or in need of support and assistance. Our aim is to support individuals in taking control of issues affecting their lives. We do this by offering a variety of services to meet the needs of our community as well as preventing violence against women and children through education. We seek to assist women in making links necessary to direct their lives through a respectful, nonjudgmental process of empowerment.
