St. Giles and AWAC worked together in 2017 and 2018 to host a walk in Prince George.  In 2017 we had over 150 people walk and raised nearly $28,000.  In 2018 we had over 200 people walk and raised over $41,000.  

2019 marked a change for our walk, St. Giles took a step back and allowed AWAC to take the reins and lead this event. 

We want to thank everyone who supported us and joined us in raising funds for our community.

About AWAC

DSC 4801AWAC- Association Advocating for Women and Community is a non-profit organization that opened in 1994, with the vision to provide safe and supportive shelter for street-involved women and female youth. Over the years we began to see the need for our services to expand. With the rate of homelessness increasing in our community we created the Housing First, Outreach, Housing Readiness and Olive's Branch transitional housing program. Our shelter is now open to men during the day, and all programs apart from Housing Readiness is open to all genders. All of our programs at AWAC provide clients with the opportunity to rebuild their lives through support from a non-judgmental, trauma informed approach. It is our goal to help move both men and women from homelessness to independent living by offering various levels of supports throughout the different stages of housing.
