Your membership is free of charge.
Having a strong membership base is important for our non-profit society. Not only does it raise awareness of the society in the community it also helps us to better engage with individuals like you who share our values and have an interest in the vital work we do.
We, Archway Society for Domestic Peace, operate the local women’s shelter as well as 16 other programs. These include a comprehensive range of services to women, children, men and families from the North Okanagan who have experienced sexual or physical violence. Our programs include victim assistance, free counselling, safe shelter, outreach services for isolated women and families, information, advocacy and educational programs in schools and the community at large. Archway Society also is involved in many community partnerships with other local organizations. We chair the Violence Against Women in Relationships Committee (VAWIR), Sexual Assault Services Committee, Oak Child and Youth Advocacy Centre and the Integrated Case Assessment Team (ICAT).
- Membership helps maintain funding for the valuable programming we offer to women and children.
