Regarding the Ksan Society
Since 1979, the Ksan Society has been serving the community of Terrace and the areas immediately surrounding it as a charitable organisation that offers a variety of programmes and services. The foundation of the Society is the belief that women and men are on an equal footing and that it is possible to break the cycle of violence. Its mission is to assist women and their children who are escaping abusive relationships by providing them with public education, social programs, safe shelter, food, and other necessities; it also serves women, men, and families who are homeless or are disadvantaged in some other way.
The Society is founded on the principle that being healthy, safe, and secure involves a myriad of interconnected factors; consequently, it provides a comprehensive range of programmes and services to the local community. With the intention of assisting individuals in gaining access to the tools and assistance necessary to make positive changes in their lives, each and every programme and service is accessible to anyone and everyone in need.
Children and women who have been impacted directly or indirectly by violence and abuse can access counseling and support services. These services are available to those who have been impacted by violence and abuse in any way. Those who require them can choose between participating in individual or group therapy sessions. These services provide individuals with a space that is both safe and supportive in which they can talk about their experiences and receive assistance and direction in coping with traumatic events and healing.
There are also programmes that provide subsidised housing to ensure that individuals and families do not pay more than thirty percent of their income towards the cost of renting a home that is both safe and secure. The Society is of the opinion that having access to housing that is both safe and affordable is necessary for individuals and families to lead lives that are both healthy and secure.
In addition to these services, the Society also offers food security programs, which are designed to help those who are less fortunate gain access to food that is both fresh and nutritious. The programme provides a variety of resources, such as community gardens, food banks, and meal programs, to assist individuals and families in need of assistance.
The name of the society comes from a First Nations word that translates to “river of mist”; this refers to the Skeena River, which passes through Terrace. Over the course of more than 40 years, Ksan Society has been meeting the varied requirements of the local community through the provision of various services. The Society takes great pride in its history as a grassroots organisation and maintains its commitment to the community even today. A Board of Directors that is elected on an annual basis ensures that the Society is moving in a direction that is beneficial to the community and offers a wide range of perspectives from the community at large.
The Women’s Transition House and Support Programs are two of the services provided by Ksan Society, which are both categorised as programmes. Residents and/or drop-in clients can receive support, safety, advocacy, information, education, crisis intervention, and referrals from this programme. Trauma-informed practises are used in the operation of the programme to give clients and residents the feeling that they are supported and safe while they are participating in the programme.
Support Workers are employed by the programme; they are individuals who have experience and skills in working with individuals who are homeless and/or transient. They are knowledgeable and have an understanding of Indigenous Peoples’ historical trauma, in addition to issues pertaining to substance abuse, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. The Support Workers are capable of working independently or as part of a team while adhering to established operating procedures thanks to their superior organizational, problem-solving, and communication skills. They are required to sign an oath of confidentiality and submit to a background check. Additionally, they are expected to maintain confidentiality and respect the boundaries of the relationship.
The Ksan Society provides its employees with wages that are competitive and transparent, as well as a variety of paid leaves, benefits, and an employer-contributed MPP. In addition, the Society offers opportunities for professional growth and development, which are essential for making a genuine impact in the local community. The Support Worker position does not require the use of a vehicle in the performance of duties; however, membership in BCGEU is required for the position.
The Ksan Society is dedicated to incorporating the values of equity, inclusion, and diversity into the recruitment process in order to build a workforce that is representative of the communities it serves. Given the nature of the programming that is being provided at the Transition House, this position is only open to female applicants (whether they identify as trans or cis), gender-diverse applicants, and two-spirited applicants.
In conclusion, the Ksan Society has been active in the community of Terrace and the areas that surround it for over 40 years, delivering vital services and programmes to those communities.
