Gillian's Place officials have reported a spike in gender-based violence since the start of the pandemic. The pressure to meet the demand is compounded by the cancellation of several key fundraising events during the course of the pandemic.
Gillian's Place offers a safe shelter, support services, outreach counselling, legal advice, second stage housing, safety resources, and more for women, children, Two-Spirit, genderqueer, trans, and non-binary people facing gender-based violence.
