A Safer Place
Short term, safe housing is available to women and their children who are fleeing an abusive relationship.
Each year, more than 160 women and children receive emergency shelter services from The Women’s Centre Grey Bruce where qualified staff are on-site 24 hours per day to ensure that women are supported during their stay.
Our staff is available to provide understanding support, information and referrals to other community resources such as legal assistance.
Our eight bedrooms have recently been updated and feature multiple beds so that families can stay together. Our designated pet room can accommodate a dog, cat, or other small animal. Women share the kitchen, recreational areas, large fenced yard, and laundry facilities.
Program staff and a cook prepare meals and residents share household chores. The home is fully furnished and can meet a range of special needs.
Toiletries, meals and other basics are provided for women and children during their stay.
