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. 

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. This preventative work is important in breaking the cycle of abuse in families. Currently it takes 8 months before we can take on a new young person. Your support to this program means we can continue to see more kids.

Women's Emergency Night Shelter

We have a Women's Emergency Night Shelter in North Cowichan/Duncan! It is now year round. Please donate to help us maintain the emergency shelter with funding for food, warm and rain-proof clothing, blankets, and other essentials for this initiative.  

Shelter Enhancement Fund 

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.
