The Circle of Strength is a passionate and determined group of monthly donors on a mission to end gender-based violence in our lifetime.

People like you, from all over Canada, are giving anything they can to prove how unstoppable we are when we work together.

The year started with Home Sweet Home – a compelling video now at over 184,000 views.

Together we raised awareness because domestic homicide research confirms that a woman is less likely to be killed when she is connected to a community-based response like we provide.
