Get Involved in Ending Domestic Violence

In order to effect change, we must act. Below are a few ways that you can BE the movement:

ASK FOR HELP – If you are struggling with domestic violence in your relationship, know that there are safe avenues of support available. If the danger is immediate, call 911. HomeFront encourages people to reach out to the police – HomeFront acts as the “what’s next?” after people have been in contact with the police.

If you are not comfortable reaching out to police, check out the Get Help page on our site, which has a number of safe, confidential and inclusive resources in the city where you can access support.

BE AN ENGAGED BYSTANDER – There are a number of ways to lend a hand to someone you think might be dealing with domestic violence. Start by expressing genuine care and concern, and ask open questions. This lets the other person know that you are a safe person to open up or to share what’s going on. Examples include: “I’ve noticed … and I am concerned about you. Is there anything I can do to help?” or “I’ve noticed … and I’m worried about you. Is everything ok?” We’ve created a blog with more details on how you can assist someone who might disclose they are in a violent relationship, you can read that here.

DONATE – HomeFront works to support families faced with domestic violence and holds their hand as they navigate the difficult journey to safety. As a non-profit, HomeFront relies on community donations to continue to provide this support. Your donation will help to free individuals and families from the cycle of abuse and give them a future filled with hope. If you are interested in supporting HomeFront, you can donate here.

Community Fundraising

HomeFront’s Community Goal is in honour of our 20th Anniversary this year – pledge to reduce domestic violence!

Since our 20th Anniversary falls in 2020, we are looking to get 2,020 Corporate Challenge members to pledge $20 – that would amount to $40,400 to help save the lives of victims of domestic violence. This money would directly help give support to 161 clients and their children. HomeFront supports victims of domestic violence through a collaborative approach. When someone calls 911 for domestic violence, HomeFront is the “what’s next?” We support clients as their case moves through the justice system and provide them with information, resources, referrals and support so they can break their cycle with violence and live a safe and healthy future.

I nterested in helping families live healthy lives that are free from domestic violence? Hosting a community fundraiser to support HomeFront will help families who are living with fear, live with hope.

Your community fundraiser can be as creative as you wish, as engaging as you’d like, and as fun as you can imagine. Some ideas include: Chilli Cook-Off; Silent Auction; Bowling Tournament; Christmas Party; Golf Tournament; Garage Sale; Fashion Show; Wine Tasting; Philanthropy Party; Bingo Night; Murder Mystery; Scavenger Hunt; Donations in lieu of wedding or birthday gifts.
