Warriors Against Violence Society (WAVS)
This is a place for people to donate to Warriors Against Violence - an Indigenous-led nonprofit based in Vancouver, BC. Our work aims to support individuals who are dealing or have dealt with violence and are seeking tools and support to move forward with their lives. We incorporate Indigenous teachings and ceremony as tools for healing. Our biweekly groups are open to people of all backgrounds and genders and we are one of the few organizations offering a safe place for Indigenous men to come and speak about their experiences.
Our organization relies heavily on grants and donations to keep its doors open. This will be WAVS' 25th year offering services to the community.
I am a facilitator for WAVS and am setting up this go-fund-me on behalf of our organization. I will be directing all funds towards Joyce Fossella, the executive director of WAVS.
