In 2021, more than 800 victims of family violence along with 264 children received support.


We have had to turn away more than 45 women and their children due to a lack of affordable beds.

Your support empowers us to help those who need it the most.

Courage Centre sponsored by Shoppers Drug Mart is a trauma-informed counselling, support, and housing Centre for victims of family violence and their children, those who perpetrate violence, as well as for individuals experiencing emotional and life challenges. None of our services would be available without the selfless generosity of our donors, sponsors, team members and volunteers.

Shoppers Drug Mart LOVE.YOU Run for Women

Every February, the Courage Centre sponsored by Shoppers Drug Mart partners with the Kent Centre for the Prevention of Violence to host an important day of awareness and fundraising through a Radiothon sponsored by Radio Beauséjour. This event runs from 6am – 7pm on a select day in February. Community members are invited to call and make a donation which helps to provide necessary funds for core services. The Radiothon serves as the only major fundraising event for operational services.

In addition to collecting pledges, the day also serves to raise awareness surrounding family violence through interviews with key experts in the field, Centre staff, as well as victims who share their experiences of healing.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Beauséjour
