A diverse and equal society free of abuse.
We are committed to strengthening family and community by breaking the cycle of abuse.
We are guided by:
Through partnerships and collaborations with recognized leaders in the field of intimate partner violence, we have evolved and developed a unique method of supporting women, children, youth, and teens who have experienced violence, to increase their resilience and acquire the tools they need to change their lives and their situations. We believe in fostering hope and providing client-centered, client-directed support. Through our provision of programs and workshops, as well as our emergency shelter, we serve over 1500 families from the Tri-Cities each year.
Our philosophy is that power and control are at the heart of abuse and we endeavour to give women, children, youth, and men the knowledge, skills, and tools to increase their resilience and take the power and control back in their own lives.
Our registered charity has strong, sustainable business practices so we can continue to provide these vital services to our community. We believe in building program and human capacity through lifelong learning, program evaluation, and adaptation to meet our evolving community’s needs.
We appreciate your support to help us carry on providing essential services to women, children, youth, and men affected by intimate partner violence in the Tri-Cities. By providing the skills and tools to enhance people’s resilience, we are working to provide a diverse and equal society free of abuse.
