EVA BC Fund
EVA BC works with almost 300 community-based services and initiatives throughout British Columbia to prevent sexual violence and support survivors of sexual assault, relationship violence, child abuse and criminal harassment. Anti-violence programs in our membership are Community-Based Victim Services, Stopping the Violence (STV) Counselling, Stopping the Violence (STV) Outreach and Multicultural Outreach, and Sexual Assault Centres. We also provide support to cross-sector coordination committees and high-risk Interagency Case Assessment Teams (ICATs) across BC. Donations to the EVA BC Fund go to help improve this anti-violence and cross-sector coordination work.
Melissa Chatham Memorial Fund
Melissa Chatham, a 24-year-old young woman from Delta, BC, was tragically taken from her family and friends on Sunday September 21, 2008 in an act of violence. Melissa was a strong and beautiful young woman who was about to return to University and was taking many positive steps to gain control of her life. Tragically, Melissa’s family is not alone in having experienced such a devastating loss. Violence against women continues to pose enormous threats to the safety of women across Canada and in BC. The Chatham family asked EVA BC to set up this memorial fund in honour of Melissa’s life. The intention of the Melissa Chatham Memorial Fund is to benefit other young women dealing with the devastating impacts of relationship violence across BC.
