Battered Women

Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS) is an organization dedicated to freeing and liberating women from violence and empowering the community through training and education programs.

The organization has been providing counseling and healing spaces for victims of abuse for over 35 years and helping women to be strong and resilient through advocacy, law reform and in-class youth engagement programs.

They operate My Sister’s Closet, a thrift boutique, allowing women, men and children access to beautiful new and second-hand clothing. The revenue generated from the sales of these clothes help fund violence prevention and intervention services operated by Battered Women’s Support Services which supports over 10,000 women every year.
