Board of Directors

We empower women and children to move beyond violence by providing emergency shelter, education, and outreach services. The Board's primary role is governance and policy setting. Directors contribute 5 -10 hours per month, including monthly Board meetings and committee participation.

Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WCSWR) is committed to having a Board composition that reflects the cultural diversity of our community and the diverse population we serve with respect to age, gender, and people with lived experience, including individuals who identify as African Canadian, Indigenous, People of Colour, and LGTBQ2S.  We encourage and actively seek individuals with lived experience to consider serving in a governance capacity as a volunteer on our Board.
