I have hope!Women’s Counselling Program participant
The Safe Home Outreach Program provides support to older women as they navigate through the challenging barriers of establishing a new life. Working with a knowledgeable counsellor, women locate lawyers, prepare necessary documentation, apply for financial assistance, locate housing (either market or through BC Housing), secure banking and more.
Emergency shelter is provided both in the Shelter and in a safe home. Women stay in the safe home for up to 30 days. Safe home residents receive support, advocacy and counselling at the Transition House as well as the option to attend the Senior Women’s Support Group, which meets weekly. Call (250) 592-2927 ext. 223 for more information.
