You can also choose to apply your donation to a specific fund.

General Donations

By donating to Cowichan Women Against Violence (CWAV) Society you are helping people impacted by violence re-build their lives. Our core funding is not enough to fully fund our programs. Your donation adds to what we can do. 

 

CWAV Building Fund, Safe Housing for Women and Kids

We are raising money to build twenty "second-stage" or supportive housing apartments for women and families leaving abusive situations. 

 

Children Who Witness Abuse (CWWA) Programming

CWWA provides one-to-one and group counselling to children (3-18) who have been hurt and/or who have seen their moms hurt by an abusive partner or spouse. It gives a safe space for young people to talk about the troubles in their families. Our CWWA program is only funded for 15 hours and the society uses donations to provide another 5 hours a week. Your support to this program means we can continue to see more kids.

 

Shelter Enhancement Fund (Somenos House)

Somenos House, our place of rest, provides temporary accommodation for women and kids who are in immediate danger from violence. It's an older home that needs constant repair and maintenance. This fund allows us to keep the house in great shape and to upgrade it as needed. Occasionally, this fund helps us provide extra supports to enhance the safety and comfort of our residents.
