Violence: prevention is the cure

SWOVA and Howe Sounds Women's Centre

Vancouver Foundation understands the importance of violence prevention and funded two worthy initiatives aimed at curbing violence in our society.

The Respectful Relationships program is the brainchild of Saltspring Women Opposed to Violence and Abuse. The program goes into the school system and educates teens about respectful relationships – the idea being that learning at a young age can help prevent violence later.

The Howe Sound Women’s Centre in Squamish provides information and resources for First Nations women.

These two organizations are on the front lines, taking steps to prevent violence, before it starts.
