The mission of the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC) is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for women from all walks of life, who live and/or work in the Downtown Eastside. DEWC operates a low-barrier drop-in centre and emergency night shelter, offering safe space, supportive surroundings, meals and basic essentials to women of the community, as well as a continuum of care that nurtures and empowers members towards long-term change.

Raise money for The Downtown Eastside Women's Centre Association

For forty years, the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre has been a place of sanctuary, sisterhood and support to women of the Downtown Eastside, providing basic needs, safe space, and a platform towards empowerment for women living in marginalized conditions and extreme violence and poverty. At the heart of the Centre's mandate is the meal program, which serves hundreds of plates daily, and connects women to a continuum of care, specialized support, and a welcoming environment. As demand continues to rise, exacerbated by the multiple crises faced by women and their disproportionate vulnerability, we rely heavily on community support and contributions to sustain our ongoing work. By fundraising for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre, you're participating in meeting the most vital and essential needs of women in our community, and tangibly building a foundation for women to make positive change. We thank you for multiplying your impact by fundraising for DEWC!
