Our Mission Statement
Han Knakst Tsitxw Society facilities exist to provide safe, temporary accommodation in a culturally supportive environment to Native and non-Native women and their dependent children who are in crisis as a result of physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual abuse/violence.
Han Knakst Tsitxw Society serves all community members in the Society’s mandated area (Spuzzum to Ashcroft) and seeks to alleviate the effects of family violence by advocating a holistic approach that encompasses the entire family.
