Promising Practices Across Canada for
Housing Women Who Are Older
and Fleeing Abuse
When: September 24 at 1:00 pm EDT (Note: This is 2:30 pm Newfoundland island time)
This webinar will showcase a promising practices document created by women from a network of women- and elder-serving organizations from across Canada, all of which offer programs accessible to women who are older and fleeing violence or abuse.
The document explores women’s lives across race, class, gender, sexual orientation and ability; women who are older and fleeing abuse are from all walks of life.
Promising Practices challenges assumptions about women who are older, warns against stereotyping and reflects a lived experience, identifying what practitioners and women who are older want to meet their unique needs.
Who should attend:
Community development, counselling, domestic violence, healthcare provider, housing/shelter, seniors’ services, victim support, elder abuse professionals
