We will succeed. Here's How.
Values & guiding principles
- We are committed to providing service excellence by working from an integrated Feminist Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppressive framework that is person-centered and person-focused. We particularly acknowledge the differential impact of sexual violence on racialized and marginalized communities. We are committed to non-exclusionary policy, practice and programs. We serve all women who identify as women.
- Education and knowledge is power. We are committed to supporting the education of clients, as on-going education and self-care for staff, board, members and volunteers.
- We are committed to a transparent continual review and evaluation of policy, programs and practice. We will measure equity by results, not by intentions. We have a commitment to provide a client space within our facilities and we actively seek client-driven direction and feedback.
- We are committed to taking a lead role in the community as a catalyst for change, and will continue to have fresh ideas, innovations and “thinking outside of the box”.
The WSN was established in 1992 and continues to expand to meet the needs of survivors in our community.
