A typical stay in our second-stage shelter program is up to one year. During this time clients make the decision of whether to move into our supportive Progressive Housing program or find appropriate housing in the community. Our Housing Locator is able to provide clients with choices on what is best for them and their family based on their monthly finances.
We also provide them various Counselling.

Trained counselors are available to all adults and children residing in Second-Stage Shelter at the Centre. They provide support to help residents deal with the direct effects of violence. Counselors also assist them in practical matters such as securing financial support, applying for educational programs or employment and connecting with agencies in the community. Counselors will advocate for clients if the need arises, in order to assist them in their transition from supported to independent living.
