Women who have experienced abuse often need support in making the transition to a new life. For many, safety and housing are key concerns.

The Transitional and Housing Support Program offers women who have made the decision to leave their abusive relationship (sexually, physically or emotionally) with practical supports to assist their transition into their new home and community.

Our program helps you to re-establish yourself and live free of violence. We offer:

  • safety planning and risk assessment for you and your children

We provide referrals for:

  • housing, including shelters and subsidized housing
