Living the Gospel

Maria was trapped in an abusive relationship, isolated from friends and family. She needed to escape for her safety and that of her three children – with another on the way. After summoning all her courage, she took refuge in your compassion.

Your support meant Maria and her children were welcomed at the Safe Centre of Peel. Led by Catholic Family Services Peel-Dufferin, the centre unites 17 partner agencies to comprehensively care for families affected by intimate partner violence.
Her client navigator guided her to legal assistance, safe housing, and financial aid – all in one space with child-minding on-site.

Her courage met your solidarity

Through her courage and your solidarity, Maria and her four children now enjoy freedom and security they could scarcely imagine a short time ago. Maria thanks you for opening the door when she needed you most.

Your love helps families thrive
