Annual Report

The Society believes that no person should be subjected to any type of abuse. We believe that people have the right to personal autonomy; political, economic, and social equality; and the right to live free of violence and from other forms of abuse. Women’s experiences, voice and wisdom are unique and vital in our Society. The decision to leave an abusive relationship is respected. Members and staff of the Society believe that all women and children have the ability to reach their optimum level through strength, knowledge and courage.

All services of Ishtar Women’s Resource Society are funded by the Government of British Columbia and Individual and Community Donations.
