A safe place to turn
A compassionate ear to listen
A courageous voice to speak out

Koleinu SA protects our community from abuse by supporting victims, raising awareness, educating the public, and advocating for meaningful change.


It can be frightening to talk about abuse.

Not talking about it is even

more frightening.

It’s easier to ignore abuse.
To tell ourselves it’s not our problem.

That it doesn’t happen in our community.

The truth: abuse happens.

Avoiding it allows abuse to flourish.

It forces victims to suffer in shame and silence.

It enables perpetrators to continue 

without consequences.


We’re here to change the story.

Koleinu stands up against abuse today to create a safer tomorrow.

We provide emotional support & practical guidance to victims of abuse and work to change the underlying issues that allow abuse to occur in the first place.

Koleinu is a registered Section 18A PBO.

" Koleinu gave me the courage to leave an abusive marriage”

I have experienced every kind of domestic violence. When it escalated to dangerous physical violence I approached Koleinu. These two ladies saved my life. They are not intimidated to shine a light on this ugly aspect of our community. Living in an abusive situation is a frightening and dangerous way to live. Koleinu gave me the courage to leave and begin divorce proceedings. They have many contacts and are very well respected in the psychology community as they are in the legal world and go above the call of duty to make themselves available for people like myself. "KOL HAKAVOD" to Wendy &Rozanne for being the angels in our community who assist us when we have reached rock bottom”
