You can make positive change for women!
For over 30 years, the Assaulted Women’s Helpline has served as a free, anonymous and confidential 24-hour telephone and TTY (Deaf, deaf-blind and hard of hearing services) crisis telephone line to all women in the province of Ontario who have experienced any form of abuse.
Join the Assaulted Women’s Helpline and our team to raise funds to support women in Ontario who have experienced abuse. On average we receive 50,000 calls per year from across the province and beyond seeking support and advocacy.
Every dollar you raise goes directly towards providing telephone crisis counseling, safety planning, emotional support, information and referrals. This critical service allows thousands of women a year to reach out for help free of charge, in over 200 languages, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Register today to help end violence against women and their children.
Your support is critical in helping us achieve our mandate to provide telephone crisis counselling & intervention, information and referrals, and safety planning to our callers each year – survivors of violence, their friends and families, health and legal professionals, community service providers and those calling on their behalf.

The Assaulted Women’s Helpline provides someone for a woman to talk to when she needs it most, when there is no one else to turn to and no help in sight. From rural communities on the outskirts of Ontario – to the inner city surrounding the GTA. We offer culturally sensitive services for any woman who calls, identifying first what her immediate needs are then assessing/ developing a plan for either the short, or long term.
There are many barriers that women face preventing them from reaching out for help, or leaving an abusive relationship. Fear, shame, income, cultural or familial pressures, immigration status and countless other realities make it difficult, or sometimes impossible for a woman to leave safely.
