The Women’s Centre of HaltonHealth and Wellness
COVID has disproportionately impacted women and created even greater obstacles for women to overcome. With a rise in domestic violence rates, complications related to separation and divorce, and mental health and financial stresses, supporting women in our community is all the more imperative. Furthermore, poverty is gendered and disproportionately impacts women who are separated and who are visible minorities, recent newcomers, and immigrants. We recognize that a post-pandemic reality will be filled with more women in crisis and a greater need for programming and support networks for women in Oakville. GIVEOakville will help us to design and implement a hybrid program delivery model and organize and advertise our services to the public.
