The Xolhemet Society was formed in 1988 by our founder and one of our original board members Wilma Mussel, who started a committee to form a transition house. The Xolhemet Society Transition House was officially opened in 1991 in the community of Chilliwack. The Xolhemet society has been a part of our community for over 25 years helping hundreds of women and children annually from all across British Columbia with safe shelter and support services when fleeing domestic violence. Our second stage housing program officially opened in 1996 and from there the organization has been built into what it is today with multiple successful programs that we run in our community including our Homeless Prevention Program and our Outreach Program. Just over 3 years ago we re-named our Transition House to "Wilma's Transition House" from the "Xolhemet Transition House" after our original founder. Wilma sat on the board of the Xolhemet Society for 21 years.
