Terrace Women’s Resource Centre

What We Do

  • As a regional hub, women access services in Terrace that are not readily available in the more rural communities, including First Nations villages.
  • As a resource centre, we serve the population of Terrace itself, plus those from surrounding communities.
  • We promote a creative, intergenerational, and inclusive safe space for women to share knowledge and skills.
  • We value the efficiencies and professional relationships developed over the years that allow us to direct women to in-house services such as Skeena Child Care Resource & Referral, or to external supports.
  • Women’s Programs staff are committed to cross-training all those working with women who have experienced violence, and we are knowledgeable of other agencies protocols
