|Description & Services|
|Service Details||The Central Okanagan Emergency Shelter society, operated as the Kelowna Women's Shelter, is a registered charity governed by a volunteer board of directors. For the last 40 years, the Kelowna Women's Shelter has provided shelter, food, essential items, counselling, support services, and preventative education to women and their children experiencing domestic abuse and violence.
Programs and services provided include an Outreach Program, support groups, advocacy, PEACE Program for children who have witnessed abuse, Inside/Out Violence Prevention Program for Youth, volunteering opportunities, and our Thrift Store. We also act as a connector to other local like-minded services, supports and organizations that may be of help to the women and children who access our facility. Shelter counselors are on duty and ready to help 24-hours a day, 7 days per week in person, over the phone, and through e-mail. Services are provided to women and children in the area spanning from Oyama to Peachland. Partnerships with other shelters in areas outside of this section help us support any women and children who may not fall within that area.
Last year, 186 women and children total were housed in the shelter, over 9,792 meals were provided, 799 crisis and counselling calls were received on our 24-hour phone line, 960 group and individual counselling sessions were conducted, and 628 children attended our child and youth programs.
