EVA BC Fund
EVA BC supports and trains workers in nearly 300 community-based services and initiatives throughout British Columbia to support survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, child abuse and criminal harassment. These include anti-violence programs funded by the province’s Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (MPSSG): Community-Based Victim Services (CBVS), Stopping the Violence Counselling (STVC), Stopping the Violence Outreach (STV ORS) and Multicultural Outreach (MORS), and Sexual Assault Services (SAS).
Our Community Coordination for Survivor Safety (CCSS) work provides support to cross-sector coordination committees and high-risk Interagency Case Assessment Teams (ICATs) across BC.
And our prevention programs seek to shift culture and improve response and prevention to gender-based violence and hate in workplaces and communities make them safe, respectful and inclusive for everyone.
Donations to the EVA BC Fund go to help support and improve this anti-violence, cross-sector coordination and prevention 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.
