We represent a strong, unified voice on the issue of violence against women on the national stage. Through collaboration, knowledge exchange and adoption of innovative practices, we advance the co-ordination and implementation of high quality services for women and children accessing shelters.
Check out Techsafety.ca, a project of Women’s shelters Canada that equips shelter and transition house workers with the knowledge and resources they need to support women, children, and gender-diverse people with their experiences of technology-facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV).
This issue of Shelter Voices was designed to contribute to a better understanding of the non-residential and external services and programs provided by shelters/THs, highlighting the range of work happening in these organizations beyond providing a safe place to sleep.
