Facts About Family Violence
Less than 10% of all sexual assaults are reported to police.
(“Self-reported victimizations reported to police, 1999, 2004 and 2009,” Criminal victimization in Canada, 2009, Samuel Perreault and Shannon Brennan, Statistics Canada, 2010)
Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.
"I am a mom living in WINGS at the moment with my beautiful kids. I came to WINGS because I was in another shelter, which was only a 21 day stay. They suggested I go to WINGS because they provide support and have programs that help with domestic abuse.
I came to Canada as an immigrant and met my spouse here. I was physically and mentally abused by my spouse. He isolated me from society. I wasn’t allowed to go to work or to school. I wasn’t even allowed to go grocery shopping or to visit family or friends.
WINGS changed that for me. They helped me to grow and showed me that I have the right to be treated as a human being. My counsellor is the best; she helps me to deal with my situation. Now I can speak; I am independent. I can drive a car and I am looking forward to going to school and work. Thanks to WINGS I can get financially stable and they have made me stronger and a more positive person. This place is a home to me and my children and I wish I could stay here forever."
