Alberni Community & Women’s Services Society is here for you through theses days of physical distancing.

The Transition House is open 24/7 for women who are experiencing domestic abuse and their children. Call 250.724.2223 or text 250.206.1011.

We have a walk up window for our drop-in at this time. Our doors are locked but you can access services through phone, email, social media, and is some cases in person while practicing social distancing. Please call 250.724.7111 or email office@acaws.ca and we will contact you.

Much of the life-changing work that we do at ACAWS incorporates the notion of transitions. Transitions from abusive relationships into the safety of our shelter. Transitions from shelter into independence and economic security. Transitions from the trauma of sexual assault to whole, healed, hopeful futures. Courageous transitions from fear and isolation to empowerment and hope.
