Women's Centre

The Terrace Women’s Resource Centre Society (TWRCS) is a non-profit society and registered charity established in 1980. It is a safe and supportive space accessed by women and families.

We house the following programs under The Family Place umbrella:

Skeena Child Care Resource & Referral   |    Terrace Community Literacy    |  Terrace Women’s Resource Centre

The Terrace Women’s Resource Centre Society offers activities and resources which promote healthy communities, help women, create community engagement, and reduce financial, cultural and social barriers for families.

We believe that providing access to relevant and timely community information, and building social connections will create a strong community.  Our space is used over 250 days every year by outside community groups and programs!

Our History with Girl’s Groups!

In 2016, we partnered with a local organization and a local Youth, Nisha, to deliver “Her Voice” – a by girls/for girls initiative which focused on media literacy and positive body image.

In summer 2017, we ran a girls’ group for girls aged 8-11 which included Cultural Crafts.

From 2017-2019, we partnered with Kermode Friendship Society Aboriginal Child and Youth Mental Health, Terrace teen drop-in centre, and the local school district to offer Indigenous sexual health education, mental health youth training, and bringing Out in Schools to Terrace for the first time in years.

The TWRCS ran a Girls’ Leadership Club in early 2000s.

Many of these initiatives, like TWRC programming, were funded by one-time grants.  

Today TWRCS is grateful for the Canadian Women’s Foundation, Girls Fund grant to fund ongoing girls empowerment programs”
