Activities within the community
La Maison du Réconfort works to counter and denounce domestic violence, the ultimate goal being to bring about social change by promoting and defending the rights of women and children.
We carry out prevention and awareness-building activities within the community and at school, to raise public awareness about the problem of domestic violence.
La Maison du Réconfort organises workshops for women who have experienced domestic violence in their intimate relationships to help them overcome the feelings and effects of victimisation and to continue to regain personal empowerment. The workshops seek to help these women break out of their isolation, see the consequences of violence and regain power over their lives. There are two series of workshops per year, open to about twenty participants each – one series in the fall and the other in the winter.
