The Revelstoke Women's Shelter's Moving Forward program offers women opportunities to learn and develop a variety of essential life skills in a friendly space where they can build healthy relationships and create communities of care.
A healing voyage of discovery
The Moving Forward program is part of the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter Society’s wrap-around service. It offers traditional and holistic support and mentoring to women who are transitioning from an abusive and/or isolated environment to building an empowered and healthy life. Staff assist clients to address social determinants of health by securing appropriate housing, providing transportation to appointments, and coordinating with a variety of community service providers (substance use and mental health counsellors; legal, medical, educational and early childhood supports; advocacy; employment services).
Moving Forward hosts weekly programs that are lead through structured instructional workshops, group support, informational sessions and mentoring. All programs are open to in-house clients and, through referrals, for outreach clients.
Moving Forward is funded solely through grants and donations. Please contact us directly if you would like to attend one of our outreach programs or in need of services.
