Assaulted Women’s Helpline

Raise money for Assaulted Women’s Helpline

Run with the Assaulted Women’s Helpline in support of women experiencing abuse!

For over 35 years the Assaulted Women’s Helpline has provided 24/7 telephone crisis counselling support to any woman in Ontario who has experienced any form of abuse.   Trained counsellors provide crisis counselling, emotional support, information and referrals.  On average our counsellors receive nearly 50,000 calls per year from across the province and beyond seeking support and advice.  

We recognize how difficult it is for many women to reach out for support.  AWHL works hard to eliminate the barriers that can prevent women from picking up the phone including access to language line services in over 200 languages.  All calls are anonymous and confidential; we do not have call display. 

The Helpline is dedicated to working towards equality for all women.

To find out more about the Helpline, visit or follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Thank you for your support! In 2020 we raised over $35,000! Help us reach $40,000 in 2021.
