Facts About Family Violence
In 2009, 64% of those with children who experienced violence by an ex-spouse indicated that a child had seen or heard the violence.
(About Family Violence.(2015, Jan. 7). Retrieved April 10, 2015, from Government of Canada Department of Justice: http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/cj-jp/fv-vf/about-apropos.html)
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."
