We have 15 beds for women and children, including an accessible bedroom. Families will stay in the same room and women without dependents may share bedroom space.

We have a comfortable environment, with living space and access to Transition House Workers 24 hours a day. We work alongside every woman and child who comes into the shelter to help them along their journey. We can help through providing supportive counselling, housing assistance, connection to community resources and support throughout the legal processes.
