About The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre

The Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC) has served as a place of refuge, resource centre, and community hub, since 1978. As one of the only women-only spaces in the area, we operate a low-barrier drop-in centre and emergency night shelter, providing safe space and basic essentials such as hot meals, clothing and toiletries, showers and washrooms, phone and computer access, as well as support services such as advocacy, victim services, HIV case management, skills development, and housing workers. By connecting women to a continuum of care, we built their capacity for empowerment and long-term positive change.
