24-Hour Crisis Line and Text Line

Crisis Line Number: 250-338-1227

Text Number: 250-218-4034

The 24-hour Crisis Line and Text Line provide immediate support and information to women who are experiencing abuse now, including the potential to access emergency shelter. Family and friends of women who are being abused are also welcome to call/text these numbers for information and support.

Trained staff at Lilli House respond to the calls/texts and are able to share information about where to find resources in the community and can support women who are at risk of violence to create a safety plan for themselves and their children.

 

In solidarity

The Comox Valley Transition Society is deeply saddened to learn of the finding of unmarked graves of children at the sites of several former residential schools.

As an anti-oppressive organization working to end violence, poverty and homelessness we recognize that the residential school system was part of a larger system of racism and cultural genocide that continues to this day and continues to impact the lives of First Nations, Inuit and Metis persons and communities.

CVTS is committed to listening to, and learning from, Indigenous staff, clients and community partners and to taking action towards the implementation of recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that pertain to our work.
