South Okanagan Women in Need Society – Since 1981
Our programs and services provide shelter, safety and support by helping individuals recognize, understand and overcome the impacts of abuse. Our services are provided to individuals who have experienced, or who are at risk of experiencing violence or abuse in the South Okanagan (from Summerland to Osoyoos and from Naramata to Keremeos).
HELPING INDIVIDUALS IN NEED
There are many ways to get involved to help us stop violence and abuse in the South Okanagan. Become a member. Volunteer. Donate. Open your home as a Safe Home. You can make a massive positive change on the lives of women and children.
YOU can make a difference in the lives of women and children in the South Okanagan by making a donation to SOWINS. It’s a sad fact that demand for SOWINS programs and services exceeds our funding to provide them. Donate today.
