Emergency Shelter

We have a short term emergency shelter to accommodate women and children in need, whether they are fleeing an abusive relationship or find themselves in a housing emergency or another crisis situation.

Crisis/Support Line

If women or children are in need of support or are experiencing a crisis, we have a toll free number that they can call 24 hours a day. Our staff are supportive and can provide an array of resource information and or referrals.

Outreach Programs

This provides out client service for women in the community dealing with issues or as a follow up for women who have left the shelter. The outreach workers provide support counselling to women (16+) struggling with a variety of issues including assistance in accessing information on employment, housing, education, self esteem and domestic violence. In addition, they are available to provide in service training or presentation on a variety of topics. Our Workers can also provide accompaniment to appointments such as court appearances, lawyer, police, etc.

Historical Abuse / Sexual Assault Program

The aims of this program are to provide individual and group counselling to survivors of sexual assault who are over 16 years of age and to develop individualized treatment plans. Through counselling, women are able to explore their past to determine whether or not abuse actually took place as some clients may be in the process of discovery. In addition, our workers are able to meet issues dealing with recent sexual assault in terms of support counselling. Within this program, our worker also provides education to the community about sexual assault and available support services as well as providing necessary referrals.

Childcare Program

In addition to providing child care for residential clients, we also offer support for children and mothers who enter the shelter, on-going outreach support for children and youth, and the Changing Patterns Child Witness Group for children who have been exposed to domestic violence.

Public Education Projects

We educate the public through different campaigns that we do, such as International Women’s Day and International Day of the Child, May-Sexual Assault Prevention Month, June-elder Abuse Prevention and Awareness, November-Domestic Violence Prevention, recognition event to honor the women who lost their lives in the Montreal Massacre.
