About Us

The Rape Victims Support Network provides counselling services and practical help to those victimized by sexual assault. Our counsellors are available from a consortium of Lower Mainland counselling agencies.

We are an outreach of the Christian Advocacy Society of Greater Vancouver, a non-profit agency providing support to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies, post abortion grief, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

CAS outreaches include the Burnaby Safe House, OnlineCare Canada, Crisis Pregnancy Centres of Vancouver and Burnaby, Post Abortion Community Services and Rape Victims Support Network.

In our 25 years of community service, we have assisted over 16,500 women.  All peer counselling services are free and confidential.
