About DEWC The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre has existed since 1978 to support and empower women and children living in extreme poverty in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
High levels of violence, homelessness, addictions and poverty characterize this community where women and children are particularly vulnerable to exploitation, injustice and injury.
Through the Drop-In Centre and Emergency Night Shelter, we provide practical support to over 500 women and children daily to survive the conditions of ill health and violence that surround them.
We work to provide security, basic needs and support to encourage women to make long-term changes by identifying and removing barriers to full participation in the larger community.
The Opportunity The Power of Women to Women Project Coordinator will seek to address issues related to women’s participation of women in the downtown eastside and beyond in areas of decision making, public awareness, program delivery and policy development.
The Coordinator will develop and implement women centered learning encounters focused on social justice, equality, and social change.
Using a Popular Education model, she will engage with women from the community and facilitate the development of community organizing initiatives. About You
