Serving the community since 1973, Dixon Transition Society helps to reduce the impact of domestic violence by providing a safe haven for women and children. Transitional housing programs, counselling and outreach services form a continuum of care to help women and children live a life free from violence. Read more about our programs.
Our approach to supporting women and children impacted by domestic violence is based on feminist ideology. We recognize the societal power imbalances that lead to women being exposed to abuse and violence, and we understand the dynamics of abuse and the impact it has on the family and the community.
We are committed to increasing awareness about the impact of violence against women and children, as well as educating our community on these issues. Our role in the community is to provide support and advocacy to women and children fleeing abuse.
We believe that addressing violence against women and children is the responsibility of a community as a whole. Until we address the systematic barriers that contribute to violence against women and children, we will not be able to eliminate domestic violence. We provide women and children with a fully supportive and non-judgmental environment during their time of need. As facilitators, we see ourselves as having a continuing role as educators, advocates, consultants and catalysts for actively decreasing violence in our community.
We acknowledge that we work on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
