DEWC is experiencing unprecedented challenges with the increasing growth in homelessness. Consequently, there has been a significant rise in the demand for support service within our Centre and Emergency Night Shelter for women and children.

With every sponsorship of just $5, you are supporting a woman to access crucial refuge and shelter from high levels of violence and conditions of poverty. DEWC also provides free basic necessities including hot meals, secure toilets and showers, and clothing. Our Kitchen Program serves up to 500 meals daily, totaling 182,500 annually. Our specialized services at DEWC include Advocacy, Housing Outreach, Victim Services, HIV Case Management, Senior Outreach, and Cultural Programming.

The cost to deliver these services is growing exponentially and we need support from community members like you.

Since 1978, the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre has provided a safe space for women and children in the Downtown Eastside. We provide practical support, basic necessities and hot nutritious meals to over 500 women and children every day. We support women to make positive changes in their lives by connecting them to a continuum of services including outreach, advocacy, wellness, recreation, housing and skills development.
