Family violence impacts women, children and families in Peel. Keeping children safe and supporting families is a community effort.
Peel CAS has a Domestic Violence Team which works with high-risk cases where children are impacted and/or exposed as a result of domestic violence. We are one of only a handful of CAS domestic violence teams that exist in Ontario.
Our DV team is one of 10 community partners housed at The Safe Centre of Peel, a multi-service centre where families and individuals impacted by violence and abuse can access many of the services they need in one place.As a result of this partnership with the Safe Centre of Peel, immediate intervention and assessments – one to two days vs. one month–break down barriers and create safety for women struggling to break the cycle of abuse.
