The 482 Collective

CONCORD, Ontario, L4K0K7 Canada

Mission Statement

The 482 Collective is actively reimagining how we help people who are bravely struggling to make ends meet after experiencing trauma or abuse. We support women, children and individuals from marginalized communities who have fled gender-based violence, including: human trafficking, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and physical/emotional abuse. We do this by listening closely and giving them what they need, not what we think they need.

About This Cause

The 482 Collective is building a culture of giving in our community by supporting individuals and families of any race, sex, religion, or cultural background who have experienced any – and sometimes many – of the following: intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual assault, physical/emotional abuse, human trafficking, poverty, and other forms of trauma or abuse. We recognize that leaving an abusive situation is one of the most complex and isolating experiences a person can face. Our goal is to alleviate some of the stress associated with this experience by providing timely support of essential items, including: household cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, bed sheets, kitchen supplies, infant/baby gear, necessary clothing, essential technology, non-perishable food items, and more. Once these key elements are in place, we extend our support further by connecting clients to community services that can help remove barriers and open up access to resources as they rebuild their lives. We harness the collective giving power of the community by encouraging individual donations and volunteering, and building partnerships with small businesses, organizations, and corporations who are energized by giving on a human level, in a way that preserves the dignity of those in need. The 482 Collective is located in the City of Vaughan and supports people living in York Region and throughout the GTA.
