Kelowna Women's Shelter Presentation - July 2018

Increasing Awareness Of Domestic Violence in Our Community

INCREASING AWARENESS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY Kelowna Women’s Shelter Support and Education Programs Get Boost from Local REALTORS® Kelowna 25 July, 2018 – Broker Manager, Dave Favell of Royal LePage Kelowna presented a cheque to Executive Director, Karen Mason and Resource Development Coordinator, Kathleen Lemieux of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. In 2017, Royal LePage Kelowna REALTORS® held fundraising events and donated part of their commissions to The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation throughout the year.  The result was more than $7,900 raised to help women and children who are served by the Kelowna Women’s Shelter each year. Supporting women’s shelters and increasing public awareness of domestic violence is key to reducing its incidence. Regardless of culture, religion or ethnicity, violence against women and children is a significant problem across Canada. We are ensuring that women and children have somewhere to turn when needing to escape domestic violence and rebuild their lives. In 2016, Canada statistics show that more than one quarter of violent crime resulted from family violence. Children often interpret violence as a normal part of a relationship and an acceptable way to resolve conflict. Women’s shelters provide victims with essentials such as, food and clothing and deliver ongoing counselling, support and preventive education at no cost.   About the Central Okanagan Emergency Shelter Society and the Kelowna Women’s Shelter The Central Okanagan Emergency Shelter is a non-profit Society, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Kelowna Women’s Shelter is a member of B.C. / Yukon Society of Transition Houses, a network of women’s shelters, transition houses, and safe homes across B.C., yet function as an independent organization. The paid staff and volunteers provide services to women and children in the area boundaried by Oyama to the North and Peachland to the South. Many programs and services are offered, including; outreach and support, shelter and transition housing, children’s programs, violence prevention, childcare and counselling and crisis support.   Visit Their Website About the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation    The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and ending violence against women and children.
