"The Station", Ontario's first Violence Prevention Multi-Service Hub for Women and Youth

METRAC is launching a campaign to establish “The Station” Violence Prevention Hub in 2014, our charity’s landmark 30th Anniversary year. In partnership with Springtide Resources and other like-minded agencies in health, settlement, housing, legal and social enterprise, we will help women and youth:

  • build financial freedom from violence
  • get holistic health support
  • access justice and know their legal rights
  • find housing, reduce risks of homelessness and settle safely into Canadian life
  • build safety from violence and harassment where they live, work, study and play

Learn more about the vision for The Station in our fall/winter 2013 newsletter.

Impact Snapshot

We work year-round to make communities safer for women and young people, because a safer world for women and youth is safer for everyone. Here's a taste of METRAC's impact - help us grow it into a future free of violence:

  • 12,500 views of our legal information webinars and for women at risk of violence and their service providers
  • 591 youth participants in weekly violence prevention after school program
  • 1,179 Safety Audit participants making their neighbourhoods, schools and workplaces safer

A little goes a long way at METRAC:

  • $50 helps a few shelters and drop-in centres to get free copies of METRAC’s written materials on warning signs of violence and women’s legal rights.
  • $100 provides a ReAct violence-prevention workshop to 30 young people at a drop-in centre or a shelter that does not have funding to do this work.
  • $150 gives hundreds of women access to the Ontario Women’s Justice Network website for six weeks, allowing them to find valuable information about their legal rights in situations of violence.
  • $250 allows a volunteer community group to get trained and supported to do a Community Safety Audit of their neighbourhood, making it safer for everybody in the area.
