Abuse Hurts provides hope through accessible support, healing and individual empowerment for adult survivors, their families and caregivers.
The Centre is a national, charitable organization that has served Canadians since 1993 with help from community and corporate partners. Their mandate is to significantly reduce the incidence and impact of abuse through education and public awareness.
Abuse is defined as any action which intrudes painfully or harmfully into the physical, psychological or social well-being of another person. The Centre is a national leader in the development of programs to prevent abuse, in advocating for the rights of those who have been abused, and in the creation of survivor-friendly ways of helping abuse victims find healing.
