BUILDING A SAFER COMMUNITY FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE
YRCCS will allow for different initiatives addressing violence against women, men and children in York Region to come together in a more coordinated and proactive way by providing structure and a centralized place to meet. Partner organizations have the ability to provide more seamless support to clients through an integrated intake procedure. When a client enters the Centre, she or he only has to tell his or her story once and, with documented permission and consent, this information can be shared with other service providers who will be providing support.
Yoga Source has partnered with YRCCS to offering clients access to the practice of yoga, taught by a certified yoga instructor in a safe environment.
“The beauty of yoga is in seeing how it can improve, enhance, and transform lives. Taking that first step onto your yoga mat and knowing all you need is to be present and breathing – that’s yoga!” Peggy Chamberlin
