Helping Women leaving Abusive relationships 
provide for their families 
 

Jewish Family & Child helps women leaving abusive relationships through crisis intervention, counselling, education, as well as other services along with financial support. 

 

If we ever hope to end violence against women, we must face the reality that woman abuse exists in all socio-economic, ethnic and professional groups. 

 

 

For $1,000 you can provide six weeks of groceries for a woman leaving abuse. 

Ensuring Students Achieve their full potential

 

Learning disabilities, ADHD, anxiety, or depression can often stay hidden and impact a student’s performance and behaviour both in and outside of the classroom. Through psychoeducational assessment students identify their strengths, manage their challenges and build a path to success at school and in life.


A psychoeducational assessment identifies areas of strength and weakness in a student’s learning profile, and provides a deeper understanding of their educational abilities.

 

Through JVS Toronto, for $2,800 you can provide one student from a low-income family with a psychoeducational assessment.
