The Moving Forward program
A healing voyage
NOTICE: Due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, Moving Forward offers the choice for online or in-person programming such as yoga on Tuesdays can be done via Zoom.
Our Moving Forward program offers a monthly schedule of activities and events to connect women in the Revelstoke community and provides after-stay support for transition house clients.
The Moving Forward program is part of the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter Society’s wrap-around service. It connects women living in the transition home with other women in the community and previous shelter clients who wish to stay connected.
Our Moving Coordinator each month creates an exciting schedule of activities, providing a social outlet for women in Revelstoke and their children. Activities include yoga, art, beading, crafts, music and a number of varied activities. The coordinator also mentors women transitioning from an abusive and/or isolated environment to one that is empowered and healthy, and can also make referrals to other local support agencies.
The program provides outreach services and staff assist clients with: finding secure housing, transportation to appointments, and coordinate when needed with a variety of community service providers (substance use and mental health counsellors; legal, medical, educational and early childhood supports; advocacy; employment services).
NEW! Our in-house counsellor, Terri Forester, is now available to provide up to 10 free sessions for Moving Forward participants.
Moving Forward is funded solely through grants and donations. The program is open to in-house clients and to any woman in Revelstoke who feels she could benefit from these services. Please get in touch if you would like to attend or are in need of services.
