Program: Project Pathways $25,000 (2014): This is a supportive environment where people have experienced abuse within religous institutions. The project focused on healing and aimed to prevent harm from reoccurring through programs, education, prevention and training.

Program: Education Program Video Library $3,789 (2010): The NLSACPC thought that a variety of educational videos on sexual violence topics would enhance their existing prevention workshops and presentations, as well as their existing support services.

Program: Crisis Support Services $5,000 (2006): In order to raise awareness about sexual violence, the Centre empowers others with knowledge and support through their crisis line and website.
