Join Us in Supporting Survivors of Domestic Violence at Our 3rd Annual Drive Away Domestic Violence Golf Tournament.
Violence against women is a serious issue that affects millions of women around the world. It can happen to anyone, regardless of their age, race, or socioeconomic status. At Campbell River and North Island Transition Society, our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where women can be empowered to decide for themselves the direction of their life - according to their own values, beliefs, and needs. We strive to support each woman with the decisions she makes.
That's why we're proud to announce our upcoming fundraising event, which aims to raise awareness about domestic violence and support survivors in our community. The event will take place on Sunday, June 11th, at the Storey Creek Golf & Recreation Society. We invite you to join us and show your support for this important cause.
The event will feature a scramble format, silent auction, a 50/50 draw and a delicious meal. All proceeds from the event will help to continue to provide services to women, and their children, impacted by violence, abuse, homelessness, poverty, mental health challenges and/or substance misuse. The latest project from CRNITS – Eagle Harbour – is scheduled to open later this year and will provide more housing for women and their children, with a special focus on senior women.
CRNITS offers a range of services to support survivors of domestic violence. The Society assists women who are fleeing abuse and seeking emergency shelter at the Ann Elmore Transition House, or at one of our remote safe homes. Our counselling services benefit women who are overcoming trauma and other challenges, while our supportive recovery program addresses substance misuse issues. Women who are unsheltered or struggling through poverty benefit from our Rose Harbour’s Supportive Transitional Housing & Women’s Change Program and from supportive resources and poverty relief available at our Drop-in Women's Resource Centre.
“Women are often reluctant to escape violence and have difficulties in moving forward in their lives due to the lack of appropriate, safe, affordable housing,” said Diane Palmer, CRNITS public relations and fundraising coordinator. “It is for this reason that we are working hard to provide more housing in our community with the addition of Eagle Harbour.”
We believe that everyone in our community has a role to play in ending domestic violence. By supporting our fundraising event, you can help us provide critical services to survivors and raise awareness about this important issue.
We hope that you'll join us at our 3rd Annual Drive Away Domestic Violence Golf Tournament and help us make a difference in the lives of women in our community. Together, we can create a world where every woman can live free from violence and abuse. Thank you for your support.
