Toronto Rape Crisis Centre
Help cancel out the background noise
In the wake of COVID-19, we’re all adapting to new ways of living, working, and disinfecting our produce!
For those offering support services to victims of trauma, adapting quickly during this pandemic is critical given the increase in demand for counselling and 24-hour crisis support. The Toronto Rape Crisis Centre (TRCC/MWAR) has adjusted how they work to offer the same level of support to the community they serve during this time. All staff are working from home using technology to connect with and support survivors of sexual assault.
As the only rape crisis centre in Toronto, their 24-hour crisis hotline has seen a marked increase in call volume since the start of COVID-19. The team is working hard to meet demand, but they need more equipment to better connect with each caller.
How you can help
The TRCC/MWAR needs eight noise cancelling headphones to properly connect with the community they serve. Each headset costs $119 (Troop will cover any fees associated with delivery). Help us pool funds to make sure our Toronto sexual assault survivors get the support they need, even in the midst of a pandemic. Any funds raised over and above the target will be donated directly to the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre.
