Battered Women’s Support Services provides direct services to survivors of gender-based violence and abuse. We support survivors of intimate partner violence and abuse, sexual assault, and childhood sexual assault.
A feminist voice against violence and oppression, BWSS is a strong, dynamic organization that provides support and advocacy for women who have experienced abuse, as well as community education and training about violence against women. Part of a global feminist anti-violence movement, our long-term goal is the elimination of all violence against women and girls.
We contribute to the freedom and liberation of girls and women from violence and to empower our community through training and education programs.
Since 1979, we have been provided counselling and healing spaces for those who have experienced abuse. To help women build strength and resiliency, we work on institutional and systemic advocacy, legal advocacy and law reform, youth engagement and we operate two social enterprises: My Sister’s Closet and Strategic Interventions in British Columbia.
