Finch Match My Donation Spotlight: Anova

This week's spotlight Finch Match My Donation is


Anova believes an inclusive world of shared power where everyone lives freely without fear of violence is possible. They are working to create change to eliminate patriarchal patterns that result in gender-based sexual violence and inequality. Anova provides safe places, shelter, support, counselling, and resources for abused women, their children, and all oppressed individuals to find a new start. All of the services available through Women’s Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London are still available with improvements, including improved accessibility, streamlined service, more service options at our four sites, improved services for children, enhanced sexual violence and prevention work for youth, and an integrated 24-hour crisis and support line. Anova believes a future without violence is possible.

"Last year, Anova helped over 11,000 Londoners with their services. I chose to support Anova as throughout the pandemic, London’s number of women and children leaving abusive homes and requiring Anova’s services and shelters have increased. Anova not only provides shelter, but a 24/7 crisis and support line and counselling for survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. They are leading the way to preventing abuse against women and children here in London. I am beyond grateful for Anova’s services and will gladly continue to support them and help to make the community more aware of their amazing, hard work!"
