Shield of Athena
MissionThe Shield of Athena is a non-profit community organization that provides professional, culturally and linguistically appropriate support, prevention and intervention services to women and their children who are victims of domestic and family violence and to ethnocultural communities.
The Shield of Athena provides individual counselling, intervention, advocacy, referral and support group services to women and children exposed to domestic violence at our offices in Montreal and Laval and at our shelter, Maison d’Athéna. Thanks to our culturally diverse counsellors and intermediaries, we are able to offer culturally appropriate counselling services in several languages. In addition, we offer domestic violence awareness sessions to organizations and the public.
