THE WINDOW PROJECT - A WINDOW INTO A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OVER THE HOLIDAY

The Ontario Association of Interval andTransition Houses (OAITH), and Yellow Brick House “The Window Project”.  The project aims to raise awareness to the realities of domestic violence.

A window installation was created at the heart of  Queen Street West Toronto, Canada.  It depicts a family celebrating a holiday dinner. But unlike a happy holiday scene, the displays depicts a domestic violence scenario.

A large number of studies have found that domestic violence against women surges during the holiday season, sometimes by as much as 30 percent.  The United Nations has found that one in three women worldwide are victims of domestic violence during their lifetime.  An estimated 362,000 Canadian children witness or experience family violence each year. Domestic violence is more common in homes with young children. Children witnessing this violence are at immediate risk of being physically injured. Research has shown that a child witnessing family violence is as harmful as experiencing it directly. This is a form of child abuse.

The Ontario Association of Interval and Transition Houses (OAITH) is a provincial coalition founded by women’s shelter advocates in 1977. Membership includes first stage emergency shelters for abused women and their children, second stages housing programs and community-based women’s service organizations. The Association works with member agencies to educate and promote change in all areas that abused women and their children identify as important to their freedom from violence.

Yellow Brick House is a place for abused women and children. In your neighborhood and across our community, we are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week providing help and hope to women and children through emergency shelter, outreach counseling programs, and public education. Last year we assisted over 6000 women and children rebuild their lives after experiencing abuse.
