Established in 1989, the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter Society is a non-profit society that supports women and children fleeing abuse through temporary shelter, outreach programs, and more, in an effort to help break the cycle of family violence.

Cumulatively, the shelter provides temporary housing and support through referrals, therapy and outreach programs, all of which are offered in a compassionate matter that respects the dignity, privacy and culture of our clients.

The Revelstoke Women’s Shelter Forsythe House, outreach programs and community events are essential to the health and well-being of our community.

In the last year alone, the shelter doubled its bed nights to 1,567, and provided services and shelter to over 83 women and 21 children.

Royal LePage Revelstoke is taking part in this nation-wide fundraising event to create a unique way to work together as a community, to recognize the work our local women’s shelter does, and to support it and its mandate.
