Services en Français

Nous offrons des services de soutien gratuits et confidentiels aux personnes ayant subi des actes de violence à caractère sexuel dans les comtés de Frontenac, Lennox et Addington.  Nous collaborons avec des partenaires communautaires pour favoriser le changement et prendre des mesures visant à faire cesser la violence sexuelle.

Youth Counselling Services

SAC Kingston offers specialised counselling services for high school youth aged 12-19 years. When youth clients access our services for the first time, they receive priority access to our Skills and Support counselling program. This program provides youth with up to ten counselling sessions which focus on understanding trauma responses and the impact of sexual violence, as well as learning skills that will increase their capacity to cope with distress. Youth are able to attend their sessions at our centre, or have their counsellor travel to students at rural high schools within KFL&A.
