Family Violence Prevention

November is Family Violence Prevention Month. To keep you and your loved ones safe, we’ve compiled several resources to help identify, prevent, and resolve family violence.

It's up to all of us to end family violence and help spread the word about the resources available to people who may be experiencing it. To show your support for family violence prevention, we encourage you to have conversations with your loved ones and by wearing purple through November. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence, call the 24-hour Family Violence Info Line toll-free at 310-1818 to get help anonymously in more than 170 languages. If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

To show support for Family Violence Prevention Month, Beaumont FCSS is giving away purple fairy lights* to be displayed at your home. You can choose to display them any way you like, as long as they are visible from outside. Our goal is to light up Beaumont in purple. We encourage you to shine your own purple lights throughout the month of November. 

Pick up your lights at the FCSS Office (5817 Rue Eaglemont) on Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

What is the Leduc and District Family Violence Prevention Team?


The Leduc and District Family Violence Prevention Team is a partnership of agencies covering Beaumont, Devon, Leduc, and Leduc County whose purpose is to provide education, awareness, and prevention initiatives around the region.
We currently offer a community based program, designed to help build relationships free from violence and abuse. This strength-based series is open to those who commit abusive acts as well as those who are the recipients. In addition, the group provides dollars towards one-on-one counselling sessions for children in these families.

The program runs twice a year for 13 weeks each. The counselling sessions are on an as-needed / as-available basis. Additionally, the group aims to provide education and awareness of family violence prevention through public events, partnerships with schools etc.

Both the counselling and the group sessions are referred via one of the partner FCSS agencies and are available to anyone. Victims of violence do not have to pay for the group sessions and counselling is available at little to no cost, depending on your individual circumstances. Costs for those who are charged with abuse are on a sliding scale.
