Hot off the press - Mothers Leaving Abusive Partners

We’ve partnered with the YWCA Metro Vancouver to produce Mothers Leaving Abusive Partners. Formerly published as Leaving an Abusive Relationship, the booklet has been thoroughly revised, updated, and given a design “refresh.” Mothers Leaving Abusive Partners is a plain language guide for women who've been abused by their intimate partner (such as a spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend). Topics include:

  • what is abuse
  • how to protect yourself and your children
  • what the courts can do
  • what will happen to the children
  • deciding parenting arrangements
  • where to get help and support
  • what to take with you when you leave

You can now order the print version of Mothers Leaving Abusive Partners and also read it online.
