In Response to a Call Out For Donated Items

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Good Afternoon Victoria Women’s Transition House Supporters,

It has come to our attention that a facebook call out for emergency items has been made by an individual to the Westshore Mom’s Swap ‘n’ Shop’s facebook page, to assist a women’s shelter in Victoria.  We’d like to clarify that this request for donations is NOT associated with the Victoria Women’s Transition House Society (VWTH).

To all those generous individuals who contacted VWTH in response to the facebook post, thanks for thinking of us! We’re appreciative of your support and anyone interested in donating can check the urgent needs list on our website http://www.transitionhouse.net/donate/wish-list and contact Beth Turner at 250-592-2927 x 214.

Young Entrepreneur Supports VWTH

Thursday, February 27th, 2014


Earlier this month we were contacted by a young woman in the fourth grade with an incredible fundraising proposal. She has recently completed her babysitter’s course and is planning to start her own babysitting business. She told us she wants to give back to her community and plans to donate 50% of her earnings to the kids helped by the Victoria Women’s Transition House. Join us in wishing her all the best in her new enterprise!

VWTH Selected as Pilot Site to Reduce Barriers

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Victoria Women’s Transition House was honored to be selected as one of three pilot sites for the Aboriginal Women Consultation Project which has a mandate to reduce barriers to support for women who have experience violence and to create a system where Aboriginal women feel more supported and that the support is appropriate and respectful of their lived experience.

Last week, VWTH staff  attended an intensive workshop on Reducing Barriers in order to develop a flexible model of service that is women-centred and identifies promising practices that will support Aboriginal women and their children when accessing transition housing programs.

We are excited to participate in this pilot and are thrilled to have resources and training to ensure we can implement the most promising practices to best serve women and children in our First Nations communities!

Calling all Cooks!

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Hey Victoria – do you like cooking in the kitchen? Are you looking for a meaningful and fun way to give back?

Since 2010, Reed Pope Law Firm has been generously sponsoring and preparing monthly meals at our shelter, a wonderful, comforting gift to the women and children who stay with us. However, they recently notified us they are not able to continue with this arrangement. We extend warm thanks for their many months of fabulous meals!

We also extend a warm invitation for other businesses, groups or organizations to step into the chef’s aprons now vacant! If you and your friends or colleagues have a few hours to give one evening a month and can sponsor the cost of a meal for a group of women and children, we would love to hear from you! Please contact our volunteer coordinator Dianne at dianned@vwth.bc.ca
