What We Do

To achieve a world free from violence and abuse we: 

- work collectively with 40 member shelters.

- change systems to improve services for women, children and seniors. 

- share and develop knowledge to respond to domestic violence.

- are changing the public conversation about violence against women and girls.

We Believe

  • in empowerment for women and equal worth of all persons
  • in strength of numbers together for a common mission
  • that the issues of violence and abuse are the responsibilities of the entire community including legal, social and political structures
