Atira Women's Resource Society is a not-for-profit organization committed to the work of ending violence against women through providing direct service, as well as working to increase awareness of and education around the scope and impact on our communities of men's violence against women and children.
Atira provides housing, advocacy and support to any woman who lives full time and identifies as a woman and meets our organizations mandate. We strive to make our services more accessible to Transgendered, Queer, Two-Spirit, and Intersexed women in need of our services through education and information. Atira recognizes the barriers and stigmatization faced by women who do not fit into society’s gender binary system and the violence, poverty and discrimination they encounter as a result. – less
