The Warriors Against Violence Society is committed to helping First Nations families unlearn abusive and violent behaviors and reclaim their traditional values of equality, honor and respect for themselves and others. WAV began as a program for abusive aboriginal men. Today, there are services for men, women, families and youth. The Warriors Against Violence Society (WAVS) currently delivers adult family group sessions based on intervention and prevention of family violence. The organization has been in operation since August, 1998. The groups are held at Kiwassa Neighbourhood house located at 2425 Oxford Street in Vancouver. We meet twice a week. One night we devote to providing tools for change and the other night is for the participants to share their stories and to gain positive feedback and support from others.
