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 sufficiant 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 (Sfe Haven) offers immediate, protective, short-term accommodations, and is available on a voluntary basis. There is no fee charged to clients for accommodations.

The Youth Worker provides educational workshops/presentations on prevention of violence to local schools and Youth Centers. Presentations on topics such as healthy relationships, communication, bullying and anger management are covered. This will include outreach to Cranberry Portage and Sherridon.
