The full interview with bonus material:

Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre is about to expand its services once again as it rises to the challenge of meeting the needs of women and children who face abuse. It received $200,000 from the Ontario government to provide two programs. The first program provides more counselling to women who face abuse. The second is an enhanced children’s program for kids who witness abuse.

This means women and children who have experienced trauma will get the psychotherapeutic counselling they need from Cornerstone. It also means women can come to one place to receive a range of services to fit their needs and the needs of their children from temporary shelter to counselling to therapy. Executive Director Nancy Johnson explains.
