The Attorney General’s Victim Services Awards of Distinction recognize the exceptional achievements of dedicated professionals and volunteers in the field of victim services, as well as the important work of individual victims.
The awards also encourage the sharing of best practices among victim services professionals and volunteers across the province.
We are proud to announce The Gatehouse is one of the recipients of the 2018 Attorney General’s Victim Services Awards of Distinction.
The Gatehouse provides a safe and inviting space for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse for over 20 years. It’s here that people can find support, share their stories and foster healing and resiliency. Over 100 volunteers work to deliver lifesaving peer support programs, helping over 20,000 people over the last two decades. Police and child welfare organizations often use the space to conduct child abuse interviews with children, youth and their families. The Gatehouse programs offer a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere where people can find healthy ways to address their trauma.
