Ann Davis Transition Society
Early in 1979, several members of the Chilliwack community met to discuss the need for a shelter for the victims of family violence. At that time there was no place for a police officer, a social worker or a community services worker to take a woman who had been beaten.
The concerned community members formed the Emergency Shelter Committee. They met in private homes and began to look at practical ways that they could help. At their first official meeting on October 29, 1979, someone volunteered to house two women and their children for three to four days. Members took responsibility to help women obtain medical treatment, deal with the police, contact the Ministry of Human Resources and locate housing.
