As of July 6th, 2020, we have re-opened our community program offices and are back to providing in-person counselling, advocacy and support. We have put many safeguards in place to keep our staff and the women, children and families we serve healthy and safe. Please see our COVID-19 safety plan for more information.
For now, we are open by appointment only. If you need a safe place to stay, someone to speak to or need support, please call 250-542-1122. And remember to be calm, be kind and be safe.
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.
