Harbour House Mission Statement

The South Shore Transition House Association’s (Harbour House) mission is to

  • Empower women
  • Offer safety, comfort and hope
  • Support and educate the community
  • Promote equality on the South Shore

Harbour House Principles and Aims

The South Shore Transition House Association (Harbour House) accepts the following principles:

  • It is a basic human right to live without fear of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. (The majority of those abused are women.)
  • Woman battering is an assault, and assault is a criminal offence.
  • It is everyone’s right to receive protection under the law, regardless of the relationship of the parties involved or where the offence occurred.
  • Abused women are not the cause of the abuse, but they are trapped within abusive situations; they live in a society that does not clearly say that abusive behaviour is not acceptable in any circumstance.

The South Shore Transition House Association aims to:

  • Provide, operate and maintain safe temporary housing for women who are victims of abuse, and for their children.
  • Provide security, support and counselling to women who have been victims of abuse and to help them become self-sufficient.
  • Liaison with all relevant community and professional services.
