Maintaining good oral health is an important component of a child’s overall health. Dentists recommend that parents begin cleaning their child’s gums even before the child has teeth, and continue cleaning or assisting the child with cleaning their gums and teeth until the child is old enough to write (not print) his or her name.

The Women’s Centre was founded in 1989 when it was realized that women leaving shelters urgently needed aftercare in order to successfully return to the community. We are now the important first point of entry to services and programs for women in crisis, distress, or transition. Our main focus is on providing for the basic needs of safety, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency through client participation in various programs and services. Everything we do reflects our Mission Statement and is offered in the spirit of “Women Supporting Women”.
We are proudly sponsored by United Way Halton & Hamilton.
SAVIS offers free and confidential 24/7, one-on-one crisis counseling services, with no judgment, just support. Services can be short- or long-term in nature and are open to female-identified, male-identified and transgender people aged 14 and over who are survivors of violence, including childhood abuse. SAVIS does not discriminate when it comes to race, colour, disability, age or national origin.
Requests for personal counseling can be completed in person, through confidential telephone sessions or online. You take part in your own accomplishments: at SAVIS we believe that survivors of violence can make their own individual healing choices, ones that lead to successful results.
We realize support comes from many different avenues. So we also provide short-term counseling and resources for family members, friends and support people, available in Oakville, Acton, Burlington, Georgetown and Milton.
Distress Centre Halton provides telephone and online support to people in our community to better cope with a crisis, loneliness, and emotional stress. Having the support of a friendly person who cares about your feelings and what you’re going through can make all the difference.
We know that anyone, at any time, can find themselves feeling lonely or overwhelmed.
You don’t have to be alone. Contact us. We listen. We care.
