Tamitik Status of Women (TSW) was incorporated in December of 1976.
TSW began as a grass roots organization where women came together to share their lives and support each other.
TSW has since grown and is an active agency that provides programs and services focused on intervention and prevention of violence and poverty issues in our community.
TSW is the centre of excellence in Kitimat with respect to prevention of violence. All services and programs are delivered with respect, honesty and trust using a women-centered and/or child centered feminist approach, focusing on the women and children’s needs, emphasizing the empowerment of women and children and the importance of addressing social and economic inequality as key to attaining a violence free society.
TSW is a non-profit society that provides programs and services for individuals and families who are affected by social issues, with emphasis on addressing violence against women, youth and children.
We are committed to promoting a healthy community by offering ongoing support, programs, education and opportunities while prioritizing equality and safety.
TSW would like to thank the many individuals and businesses in Kitimat that support our programs and services both with financial and in-kind donations.
