About Alberni Community & Women’s Services

It’s cold out there but we are a community with a warm heart.


We invite you to walk with us to support the homeless in Alberni Valley. There has been a significant increase in family violence since the beginning of COVID-19. More women are being abused, but are fearful to come forward. It is that much more critical that we continue to offer short term housing to these women and children.
