#SACHAturns40 with Your Help


Whoa. We’re celebrating forty years of SACHA tonight.  It’s both super special and unbelievable.

We couldn’t have gotten here or do the work that we do to support survivors and end violence without help and kindness from our community.  Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us in the last forty years. The survivors who founded the Rape Crisis Centre (Hamilton). The volunteers who answer the Support Line. The folks who plan events and make them run smoothly. The donors who help fund all our programs.

We appreciate you.

There are some specific folks who helped make tonight’s event happen that we’d like to thank as well:
