VWTH can provide counselling and short-term financial support to women who are at risk of becoming homeless after leaving their violent partners. Women with limited financial resources can apply for assistance in the form of rent supplements, damage deposits, moving and storage costs and other possible barriers to housing. Support from VWTH donors helps fund a Housing and Outreach Worker to meet with the women and support them in their transition to next-step housing.
Please contact VWTH Housing and Outreach Support at (250) 380-7527.
VWTH offers 3 year transitional housing to women 40-65 years of age who have a history of experiencing intimate partner abuse.
In addition to offering self-contained units for independent living, tenants also have access to programming that offers emotional supports, social connections, financial literacy and referrals to community resources and that promotes overall health and wellness.
If you are interested in attending an information session about our Third Stage Housing and would like to complete an application, please contact 250-385-2103.
