I'm participating in the B&O Yorkville Run with a goal of raising $1,500 for Victim Services Toronto.

Did you know that Victim Services Toronto works on scene alongside Toronto Police providing emotional support and practical assistance to individuals, families and communities affected by crime or sudden tragic events?  Victim Services Toronto assists more than 20,000 people each year, which includes more than 7,000 children. Operating 24 hours per day, 365 days per year Victim Services Toronto provides psychological first aid/trauma management, practical assistance and follow up services in all sorts of situations such as domestic violence, sexual assault, missing persons, motor vehicle and workplace fatalities, families of homicide victims, sudden death situations, hate crimes, to name a few.

Our Trauma Dog Dandy plays a critical role in our front line services by providing comfort to children and youth affected by crime or sudden tragedies during their meetings with Crisis Counsellors or Case Managers. She gives them much needed respite from their trauma and grief making it possible for them to engage in counsellling session, police video statements, triggering meetings such as court preparation and while giving their testimony at criminal trials.

Raised so far:
