Nova Vita Heels to Heal Walk 2017
Standing Tall, Together, Against Domestic Violence
What a Day! Our 7th Annual Nova Vita Heels to Heal Walk was a huge success, raising over $20,000 (and counting), and saw more than 125 walkers join us in Harmony Square to stand TALL with Nova Vita against domestic violence.
We at Nova Vita truly appreciate everyone’s hard work, and dedication to making our 7th annual Heels to Heal Walk one of the best attended events to date. Thank you to everyone who supported us: walkers, donors, sponsors, pledgers, and anyone who talked up the event or attended!
Don’t forget...you can still make a donation or pledge a walker until the end of June. Also, be sure sure to share your photos, on our official Facebook Page: Nova Vita Heels to Heal Walk.
Thank you to everyone who put their best foot forward to tell Brantford and the County of Brant that domestic violence is never ok!

Stand Tall...Nova Vita Domestic Violence Prevention Services is excited to announce our 7th annual Heels to Heal Walk in support of the over 750 women, men, non-binary individuals and children we serve every year. Join us on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 in Brantford’s Harmony Square, and stand tall in your red heels or your red shoes against domestic violence. This is our largest event of the year, both in raising awareness and in financial support. This year we hope to raise $50,000, and register 150 walkers in honour of Canada’s birthday.
Did You Know...Domestic violence is a serious epidemic in our community. Brantford is currently ranked 2nd in Ontario and 8th in all of Canada for police reported incidents of domestic violence. We at Nova Vita, see every day how exposure to domestic violence impacts individuals and families, and we work diligently to provide safe shelter, crisis support, individual and group counselling to everyone in our community. But we can’t do it alone. We need your help! Last year alone, we had 281 women and children live at Nova Vita, 12 women and children who lived in our transitional home, 205 women who accessed our transitional support workers, 269 women in the community who received individual counselling, and 28 children who were exposed to domestic violence, receive counselling through our child-witness program.
