Social Services

The Greek Orthodox Family Services and Counselling VAW program (Violence Against Women) — an organization funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) to the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto (Canada) — has been operating since 1984 in our Community. This organization operates from two sites with four professional front line workers as well as students and volunteers. The first one is in Scarborough at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and the second site is in Toronto at the Metamorphosis tou Sotiros Greek Orthodox Church. Its mission is to provide counselling and assistance to women and their children who are victims of domestic violence, and vulnerable seniors who are victims of elder abuse and to also promote public awareness in breaking the cycle of violence and restore safety, well-being, respect, understanding and human dignity in our families and the society at large.
