We envision people living free from poverty, violence and abuse.

In our anti-violence services and housing, IWAV welcomes all women, inclusive of trans women, and non-gender conforming people and members of the LGBTQ+ community in all our services.

IWAV is here for you. You have the right to be safe.

Islanders Working Against Violence is a non-profit society providing services throughout the Southern Gulf Islands to women and their children affected by poverty, violence and abuse. IWAV also provides affordable housing to individuals, families, seniors and people with disabilities.
