Help us end violence with everything we’ve got.

Your support makes the work we do possible.

Your gift makes it possible for us to stay on the frontline 24/7 to provide crisis support, counselling, support groups, legal advocacy, employment counselling, housing support and outreach.

Every week a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. BWSS is working to change that.
