Let hope take flight...
Domestic Violence is any behaviour by a person in a co-habitation relationship, usually one family member against another, which threatens or endangers the personal, mental or physical wellbeing or security of another..
The Shelter serves the Trinidad and Tobago community through a comprehensive series of treatment and prevention services.
The Shelter for Battered Women and Children will be holding its annual Tea Fund-raiser on Friday as part of its ongoing activities to raise funds for the services it provides to women and children who have been victims of physical and emotionial abuse.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, The Shelter wishes for all women that the men in their lives teach their sons, by example, to always show respect to all women, to express gratitude for the nurturing they provide and to honour the contribution they make to enrich the world.
All across Trinidad and Tobago too many women have sought and continue to seek safety against violence and abuse.
As with the previous site, we’ve sought through this digital medium to provide an avenue for promoting awareness of The Shelter as a safe haven for victims of abuse as well as offering useful information on matters related to domestic violence.
