Relentless to Rise

The mission of this campaign is to support services across Canada in empowering women and their families to relentlessly rise, knowing the truth, that they are deserving of safety, they are worthy, and capable of cultivating a new path to a better future.

Kathleen Black Coaching & Consulting’s (KBCC) own, Kathleen Black is pilgrimaging onto the Camino de Santiago in Spain, to raise money and awareness for domestic violence, and those who are unable to live safely in their communities. 

Due to social distancing and restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, many victim services in Canada had to modify their methods of assisting and supporting victims.  Many physical locations had to close and staff worked primarily from home. 

Victim services commonly include counselling and crisis services (including sexual assault centres), protection services, as well as court preparation and accompaniment and other assistance to navigate the criminal justice system

Due to the pandemic, victims can not shelter safely at home and some have been robbed of their ability to find safety in their communities. 

Between mid-March and early July, half (50%) of the Canadian victim services who responded to the survey perceived no change in the number of victims that they served. When asked about victims of domestic violence specifically, just over half (54%) of the responding victim services reported an increase in the number of victims they served during this time.

Kathleen Black Coaching & Consulting vows to donate all proceeds from this fundraiser to victim services located in Canada.
