Vision & Mission Statements


To achieve a balance of power in society which, we believe, will bring about an end to violence and abuse of women and children.


We believe that:

  • Ending violence is a community responsibility.  In responding to the diversity of our community, accessibility to services is imperative.  Our community has a responsibility to provide a safe haven for victims/survivors.
  • Violence and abuse is rooted in power imbalances and is never acceptable when it involves or is directed at women and children.
  • Ending violence and abuse is achieved through knowledge, which is power, and change.  And that change requires courage, conviction and commitment.
