Our objective is to provide relevant information by being responsive to the needs of community members and offer resources through various means to increase awareness of issues relating to sexual violence, provide connection to survivors and secondary victims, youth, community members, community groups, and service providers.

We deliver general presentations or customized training events on a wide variety of topics related to sexualized violence, exploitation, relationship abuse, and trauma. We also share content through social media and printed materials. We want to empower everyone to offer hope and safety to those affected by sexualized violence.

Reaching Out connects with the community through:

  • Attendance at various community health and wellness events
  • Creation and facilitation of workshops tailored to the needs of the receiver
  • Creation and distribution of a variety of printed resources (brochures, posters, information cards, resource guides, etc)
