The Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) program assists women and children victimized by violence by providing the emotional and practical support needed to lead a life free of abuse. The objective of the program is to increase the safety of assaulted women and their children who are fleeing violent relationships and ensure that their lives are not further endangered.

Clients who are eligible for VAWC services include all women who identify themselves or identified as having been physical, sexually or emotionally abused by their partner or significant other or extended family member. We provide confidential, culturally specific counseling services and support provided by immigrant women. (We operate from a holistic and integrated service model that addresses the social, cultural and political realities of minority communities, informed by feminist and anti-racist values.)
