W.A.V.E's mission is to provide safe shelter and support services for women and children who have been subjected to domestic abuse. W.A.V.E Domestic Abuse Centre is a vital resource providing confidential assistance including emergency safety services such as refuge and 24 hour crisis helplines. But you don't have to stay in the refuge to get help from the centre. W.A.V.E. provides a full range of non-refuge related services.
