Community Based Victim Services
Community Based Victim Services (CBVS) offers practical and emotional support to individuals who have experienced gender-based or power-based crimes, including intimate partner violence, sexualized assault/abuse, and criminal harassment/stalking. The program can also provide services to those who have witnessed family violence. CBVS can provide individuals with access to information about support options and assistance in accessing emotional, financial, or other practical supports.
CBVS can also provide information about reporting options and the criminal justice system, and assist with court preparation, court accompaniment, and other supports to help individuals who have experienced gender-based violence navigate criminal court as a witness. There is no requirement for police involvement to access the program, and there are no age or gender restrictions. Survivors can refer themselves by contacting Summit Community Services Society and dialling the extension for CBVS.
Stopping the violence counselling is available to self-identified women who have experienced trauma resulting from intimate partner violence, sexualized assault/abuse, and/or childhood abuse. STV counselling is rooted in a feminist and trauma informed perspective. Individual and group counselling options are available. We work to meet women where they are at, using a strength based, survivor led approach. You must be 19 or older to access this service.
