The Moving Forward program

A healing voyage

Offering a monthly schedule of activities and events to connect women in the Revelstoke community.

Moving Forward is an important social outlet that connects women living in the transition home (and previous clients as after-stay support) with other women in the community.

Activities include: yoga, art, beading, crafts, music, pottery, glass blowing and a number of varied activities.

The coordinator 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 coordinator 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).

FREE COUNSELLING! Our in-house counsellors are now available to provide up to 10 free sessions for Moving Forward participants.

Reaching out with yoga

Trauma Informed Yoga Practice

A regular event on the Moving Forward calendar this style of yoga, created from a five-year research project, is customized for clients who have experienced violence and abuse.

Revelstoke yoga teachers trained in trauma-informed yoga teach our classes.

This is a collaborative project from the BC Society of Transition Houses and Yoga Outreach, a non-profit organization.

Healing through creativity

Art as therapy

Our art program provides women with a safe space to socialize, explore their creativity, and build confidence as they build their artistic skills.

We primarily focus on watercolour painting for two hours every week, in a cosy environment. 

We have found some women express themselves through art but do not feel confident participating in more public groups. For these women, we provide a bridge to artistic groups and galleries in our community.

Power of Play

Music and Community

Our music program provides an enjoyable space for women to sing and learn to play various instruments. The women who choose to play an instrument learn basic music theory that helps them play songs on their own.

Mentoring and Support 24/7
