Support the Society
There are several ways to get involved with the Westcoast Community Resources Society including; volunteering, becoming a voting or non voting member, joining the board or donating.
The Westcoast Community Resources Society provides responsive, safe and supportive services to individuals and families while supporting their right to explore options and make choices in all areas of their lives.
We are committed to ending all forms of abuse including system power imbalances and family violence. In partnership with other services and resources we promote the equality, diversity and well being of all people in the west coast communities.
We equally value and support the empowerment of all women, children and youth. We believe that everybody deserves to have their basic needs met; and we define basic needs as food, safe shelter, clothing, medical and emotional care.
We believe in education to promote healthy communication and the unlearning of racist, sexist and patriarchal behaviours and structures. We work towards healthy, non-violent communities, in which we honour and celebrate diversity and individuality.
We believe that healing is an individual process which thrives in honest, compassionate, respectful and inclusive communities.
