Silent Auction

WAVS is holding an online silent auction this year and we are reaching out to ask for your help with donations. Whether you know someone who would be willing to donate items, or you would like to donate something of your own, all donations are welcome!

Suggested donations: Indigenous art, handcrafted items, gift cards...

Our auction will go live on our Facebook page on December 7th; if you would like to contribute we ask that you get in touch by December 1st.

Items may be dropped off at Kiwassa House at 2425 Oxford Street, Vancouver, V5K 1M7 between 8:30am and 5:30pm OR contact Serena at sbornholdt@adler.edu to arrange to have your donation picked-up.


Getting Help


WAVS is continually monitoring the pandemic to plan our date for restarting sessions. While we will not be restarting in-person sessions until further notice, WAVS is offering telephone counselling. Call 604-255-3240 and leave your name, and a number where you can be reached. We will set up a time to talk to a counsellor.

If you urgently need help, contact the Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Centre of BC.
