Our thanks & gratitude to Vancouver Foundation for the support & the spotlight on the Foundation's "What's New" page!

"At the start of the pandemic, SWAN’s focus was to address immediate needs—but over time, they realized there needed to be a new host of services.  

'We’re the only organization in Vancouver that newcomer, migrant, and immigrant women can come and not feel judged because of how they earn their income,' says [SWAN's Executive Director] Alison. 'During COVID, all the oppressions they face in society are exacerbated and I think our work is more critical than ever.'" 

SWAN's services are free and confidential. 


For direct services in English, Mandarin or Cantonese,

call or text 778-865-6343, send an email,

or contact us on WeChat.


SWAN operates independently from government, law enforcement and faith-based groups.

With gratitude for the wisdom of all First Peoples, 

we acknowledge that we live & work on the stolen lands

of the Musqueam, Squamish & Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
