Out of an abundance of caution in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the administration and community programs offices of the Archway Society for Domestic Peace will be closed from March 16-May 1
We are committed to ensuring that women, children and families continue to receive the support they need. Although we have closed our offices, we continue to deliver our counselling, outreach and victim services by phone and web based platforms.
Our Transition House will continue to provide critical support to women and their children fleeing abuse. We recognize the increased risk for women experiencing violence in the home during this crucial period of social distancing and self-isolating but want to encourage anyone needing our support to reach out to us.
We are here for you- Archway Society is available 24/7 please call 250-542-1122.
Let’s take care of each other, in times of uncertainty, kindness and humanity matter the most.
At Archway Society for Domestic Peace, we are leaders in empowering women, children and families to live with dignity and respect, free from domestic and sexual violence.
