How You Can Help Muskoka/Parry Sound Sexual Assault Services is a non-profit organization which operates through the efforts of staff and volunteers. We receive some "core" funding from the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Ministry of Health; but, fundraising activities are necessary in order to offer some programs and services.
Volunteer participation is, however, vital to the agency's existence. Without the incredible amount of time and effort offered by dedicated and caring woman in Muskoka and Parry Sound, the agency could not exist. If you wish to volunteer for our agency, please click "Contact Us" to find the contact information for the office in your area.
Please click to donate! Our ability to provide programs and services depends to a large extent on the continued generousity of our financial supporters.
To make a secure online donation (free of charge), please click on the "Canada Helps" link. Muskoka/Parry Sound Sexual Assault Services will provide charitable receipts for all donations.
You may also make a donation by sending a cheque or money order payable to: Muskoka/Parry Sound Sexual Assault Services, 29 Manitoba St. Ste. 1 Bracebridge, Ontario. P1L 1S4

"Child sexual abuse" is any act of a sexual nature committed against an individual under the age of sixteen. The "Canadian Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect" has identified seven specific forms of sexual abuse: sexual activity completed; sexual activity attempted; touching/fondling of the genitals; adult exposure of genitals to a child; sexual exploitation (i.e., involvement in prostitution or pornography); sexual harassment; and, voyeurism.
