Where necessary, support and accompaniment are provided to enable women to interact and negotiate with other social services and related services.
Community-Based Second Stage Program
To provide assistance to women who have left an abusive relationship and reside in public or private housing. Community-based Second Stage Program is for women who are somewhat independent and for whom living in a violence free atmosphere along with successful experiences in social, family and work relationships is sufficient for them to move towards independent lifestyles and the development of non-abusive, reciprocal relationships.
Emergency Short-Term Interim Housing
Emergency accommodation is part of the continuum of services for abused women and their children, who reside in geographic locations where immediate access to shelter is difficult, due to the distance. Our Interim Housing Program (Safe Haven) offers immediate, protective, short-term accommodations, and is available on a voluntary basis. There is no fee charged to clients for accommodations.
Youth Counselling Services
The goal of Youth Counselling Services is prevention of violence against women and girls, by educating women to recognize the signs of abuse before becoming involved.
The Youth Worker provides educational workshops/presentations on prevention of violence to local schools, youth centre, and the general public. This will include outreach to Cranberry Portage and Sherridon. The WRC will also develop and deliver a youth mentorship program that will deliver violence prevention workshops.
The Youth Worker goes into Schools and Youth Centres to offer one-on-one and group counselling sessions for male and female youth aged 11 to 18. Presentations on topics such as healthy relationships, communication, bullying and anger management are covered. One-on-one counselling for youth in abusive relationships is also available.
