This is a not for profit, community-based, family service agency dedicated to strengthening and enriching people by providing counselling, advocacy, support and educational services.
Community Justice: Abuse in any form leaves lasting harm on everyone it touches. Changing abusive behaviours and the negative outcomes associated with it begins with support from qualified professionals.
We have a range of individual and group programs for:

- Trauma counselling for those who have experienced: Violence Against Women, Child Witness to Abuse, Childhood Sexual Abuse for men, women, and children, and as well as for those who have sexually offended.
Groups are available in Guelph for all of these services, and individual counselling support is available in Wellington North.
