Ann Davis Transition Society House provides shelter and support for abused women and their children.

If you are seeking shelter from abuse, please call 604-792-3116. 

Our Transition House is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.



 "Shaping the Future Together" is the theme of this year's National Victims of Crime Awareness Week (Victims Week), taking place across Canada from April 19-25, 2015. 

This year marks the 10th annual Victims Week held to raise awareness about issues facing victims of crime and the services, programs, and laws in place to help victims and their families.

“The National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is an important event for our community because violence respects no boundaries," said Ann Davis Transition Society Executive Director, Patti MacAhonic, “Our vision to see communities free from violence and abuse starts with an increased awareness of who the victims are in our community and the issues they face.” Ann Davis Transition Society provides services to over 2,700 families and individuals in crisis per year.

 “A volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock. National Volunteer Week is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s volunteers.”

When we reflect on the contributions and the subsequent impacts made by our volunteers, I am humbled and amazed every time.
