Mentoring with Hope and Compassion
Sistering is a safe place where women gather and feel welcomed, understood, accepted, validated, loved, and trusted.They are also able to access community support to further their healing journey from the experience of violence, abuse and trauma.
There are several ways you can benefit from our program:
- As a Client Sister who would like one-on-one support to assist you on your healing journey by receiving peer mentoring
- As a Client Sister who would like to lessen your sense of isolation by attending our sister socials to join a group of women who want to increase their connections with other women and to practice methods of self-care
Sistering Program Schedule:
This group is only open to women with history of IPV/DV. Please refer to attached form or contact if in doubt when referring new clients.

Sistering and Wellness Program
Sistering is a volunteer program for women who have experienced trauma and/or oppression and are at a stage in their own healing process whereby they wish to give back by offering mentoring support to other women at an earlier stage.

- As a Sister Volunteer who would like to volunteer at Catholic Family Services of Peel-Dufferin (CFSPD) with the Sistering Program by co-facilitating groups, doing advocacy, and volunteering in other Sistering initiatives
